    Summer Reading

    What is the “summer slide”?

    The summer slide is what happens when students don’t read over the summer.  Often, these students begin the next school year reading at a lower level than they achieved the year before.  Not only is this discouraging, it results in lost time in their education.
    To accelerate reading achievement, your child needs a system that makeSummer Reading Images him or her want to read.  This summer we are offering the program “Read for Burritos.”  Students who want to spice up their summer and earn gift cards to Chipotle need to complete the three easy steps.
    Read It-Prove It-Eat It.  Students need to read three books of their choice (reading level appropriate), complete one Prove It form for each book and then return them to the Keller office during the first two weeks of the school year.  Once the Prove it sheets have been reviewed, the gift certificates will be rewarded to students.



    Homework Calendar Reminders

    All courses at Keller make homework information available through Google Calendars.  The calendars are accessible by both parents and students.  Students have spent class time directed by their classroom teachers to include these homework calendars in their Google Calendars.  Students should check these calendars on a daily basis.   Keller Homework website.
