Dear Parents,

Summer is a time is coming and due to the present circumstances around the world, travel is not a possibility for students and teachers. The NEIS teachers have been discussing the importance to help students build skills in critical thinking, listening, memory, visualization, and concentration and have proposed a summer school program of enrichment activities designed to stretch the brain and prepare students for the next grade level. This program will give students the opportunity to not only receive remediation in any area in which they may be struggling, but also will provide enrichment opportunities. We feel that strengthening students reading and writing skills will make them succeed in all other subjects as these are key for comprehension.


In the summer program students will have the opportunity to read to prepare them for the year ahead. During summer school, there are many things that students can do to show their learning. Posters, dioramas and book reports are all ways students show their creativity and demonstrate what they have learned. But “Reader's Theater” is also an excellent way for students to practice reading fluency. By reading from a script over and over, students build fluency through repetition.


Students will enrich their writing skills during the summer program a writing journal. This journal will not have any limitations: students will be able to write about whatever they please. Personal narratives, short stories and poems are all welcome for inclusion. The purpose of this journal is for students to expand their creativity in the area of writing and to give them practice using the writing skills and grammar skills they have learned during the school year at each grade level.


There will be math enrichment activities that students can use to expand their math minds. Drill practice is also important during the summer so that students do not lose their basic facts. Students will review key standards and skills from their previous year and prepare for the next grade level to give them a head start. They will use hands on materials and the standards of mathematical Practice to become proficient in their mathematical skills.

The enrichment program will be available for students from K - 8th grade. If you are interested in having your child come to the summer enrichment program, please fill the form on the last page (The printed form will be also sent to home today). We have not set a fee, as we first need to know approximately how many students would like to participate and then we can see how many teachers will be needed, and transportation needed, to calculate fees. Please also indicate the number of weeks you would prefer and the times for the classes. Please send the form to school by next Tuesday, June 9.
