Over the summer months, students should continue to be engaged in learning. Learning can take place in many ways: field trips to the zoo, library visits, visits to The Henry Ford and Greenfield Village, etc. Other valuable summer experiences could be an out of town family vacation or a picnic in the park. Your child’s summer vacation can go in a number of directions, but it needs to go somewhere.
We at Howard School have developed a number of opportunities that will help keep learning fresh and engaging. First of all, the Howard School Media Center will be open on Tuesday mornings during the summer. Your child is welcome to visit the school (9:00 – 11:30) to check out books and involve themselves in activities that have been designed by Mr. Neff. He is excited to keep our students reading this summer. Secondly, your child can involve themselves in the reading program that is being offered through the Dearborn Public Library. See the attachment below for more details. Thirdly, your child can participate in the summer reading program sponsored by our PTA called “Read-A-Lottery. This program is simple; have your child read, record all books read this summer on the reading log and turn in the log next fall. All participants will earn a reward for their hard work. Lastly, all Howard students have a subscription to a program called MobyMax. User name and password information was distributed to students the last week of school.
Have a great summer and keep learning!!
