How parents can support their child’s summer reading

Summer checklist: ride bike, jump rope, play ball, and READ!

It’s important that students spend time reading during June, July and August.

“During the school year, it’s so much fun to see our students’ love for reading,” said Katie Salmela, the elementary media coordinator in Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191. “Teachers and librarians want that love to continue all summer long!”

Gideon Pond reader leader will be honored at Twins game

Fourth-grader Nabiil Ibrahim loves to read.

That’s one reason why Nabiil came to mind when Gideon Pond Elementary School Principal Chris Bellmont was asked by the Minnesota Twins to nominate a student to be honored during a game on June 5.

The Twins will spotlight students who embody attributes of literacy, courage and leadership. All three attributes apply to Nabiil, said Bellmont.

Stay sharp with summer reading

As you are planning out your summer months, please keep in mind that one of the most detrimental things that can happen to a student over summer break is for NO learning momentum to exist. Even a student reading 15 minutes a day over the summer months will come back to school in much better academic shape.
