Middle School Summer Reading Assignment

This summer, students will be assigned one book per grade level. In addition, students are asked to read a minimum of one-hour per week throughout the summer (at or above their grade level). This reading can be done from a variety of sources: newspapers, magazine articles, novels, short stories, non-fiction, etc. Many students are on a range of reading levels, and we want your student to find books that are on his/her level, or slightly above. Before your student begins reading their book of choice, please have them go to Lexile.com, and type in the title of the book to find out its Lexile, or reading level. Many students are on a variety of reading levels.  We suggest your student find books that are on their level, or slightly above.

Sprigeo

Dear Families,

I hope everyone enjoyed their Christmas and you are ready for a great new year! At SPPS, we take bullying very seriously and I am happy to say that our students are very good about reporting problems they see. However, to be sure we encourage reporting ongoing bullying issues, we will be using a new online reporting system called Sprigeo. Students will be able to report incidents online from their phone, computer, tablet, etc. This system includes a parent education module that I think would be very helpful in determining the difference between bad behavior and bullying behavior. Please take some time to review the module and talk with your children about the system and how it should be used appropriately. A link to the reporting side of the system will be posted on the SPPS website and the parent information can be viewed here: http://parents.sprigeo.com/  

 We are so lucky to have your children at SPPS and appreciate the support from the families to keep everyone safe and sound while on campus. Thanks for being our partners.

Blessings,
Jamie Burch – principal
