Weekly Note from Ms. Snyder 6/15/21

Dear NHS Community,

 

It has been quite a year. On behalf of the faculty and staff of the North Hampton School, I’d like to thank families for their patience and support of our school this year. We wish you all a wonderful summer full of family, friends, free time, and fun!

 

The last Spirit Day is tomorrow….

Tuesday, June 15: Hawaiian/Flower Day (12:00 dismissal)

 

Summer Reading

Summer is a great time to read. We encourage you to help your child find some good books that interest them for their summer reading. Please see the note from our Literacy Specialist, Amanda Wiernicki, below…

 

Hi North Hampton Families,

Happy SUMMER! I wanted to share 3 ways that I am going to keep my own children in books all Summer.

100 Books of Summer: A fun and easy way to track how many books we read! Simply use dot stickers, no writing required.

 

Read Aloud Revival is a goldmine of books, both classics and newer. My favorite features are the booklists and quiz to recommend your next read. Take a peek and stock up at the library! https://readaloudrevival.com/recommends/

Lastly, your child's access to Lexia will stay available all Summer! Simply download the Lexia Core5 app to a tablet or bookmark the site on a computer. Please feel free to email me at awiernicki@sau21.org for login help if needed. 

Happy Reading!

 

 

Updated Mask Guidance for ESY (Summer Programs)

For the last 2 days of school, masks are still required indoors and on our buses, and optional outdoors. You received an email from Dr. Arakelian with new guidance and guidelines for summer programs only. For SAU 21 summer programming, masks will be optional both indoors and outdoors. This updated guidance is due to low community spread of Covid 19 and the potential for hot weather during the summer. We have not yet received guidance for the next school year. It may or may not be the same as the summer guidance.

SAS Student Score Reports for Grades 3-8

Parents of students in grades 3-8 whose children took the NH SAS test in school will receive a score report in the mail next week. We will analyze scores in the aggregate, by grade level, and with an eye towards trends in scores that will help us plan for instruction going forward. 

 

Step Up Day

Students in grades K-6 met the team of teachers they will work with next year. Each grade met all the teachers in the grade above today for about 15 minutes as a preview for next year. I think they all enjoyed it! Ask your child how it went!

 

Dates to remember:

June 15: Last day of school--12:00 dismissal

June 15: Grade 8 Clap Out at 11:45 AM

Student Laptops and iPads

We will be collecting all student devices on the last day of school. If you have a middle school student, please be sure you have returned the laptop and the charger.
