Thanks for a great2012/2013 school year. Students learned so much and made great academic progress in all areas. Please make sure you have taken care of any outstanding fees or fines and that all library books are returned. If your child did not bring home their report card, please contact the school office to find out what fees or fines are outstanding. Realize that school fees will continue to accumulate year to year, so it’s best to stay current.
More than a hundred photos were uploaded to our Photo Gallery over the last week or so of school. Check out pictures from Field Day, the Latchkey end of year party and our last PBS Reward, Spodgeball.
We were also able to get all our summer birthdays on our daily announcements. We tape those announcements and post them to the web via YouTube so that parents and grandparents can also keep see them. Follow the links for the date you'd like to view under "Morning Announcements". From there you can subscribe to our daily announcements and will receive an email from YouTube each time a new video is uploaded.
Don’t forget that our school has implemented the Lexia Reading software program. Students can access this program at home by going towww.lexialearning.comin an internet browser and clicking Downloads in the upper-right hand corner. Accept the license agreement and enter our Customer Code, 6715-9207-6910-4599, to complete the installation. Once installed, students can log in the same way they do at school to practice important reading skills. Students spending at least 300 minutes on the Lexia program this summer will be recognized on the announcements in the fall and get a free book. This is true whether students will be attending Donneslville or Park Layne next year.
The New Carlisle Public Library also has a wonderful summer reading program. Go to their website atwww.new-carlisle.lib.oh.usto see their calendar of events.
