FROM THE PRINCIPAL’S DESK:

ANNOUNCEMENTS SPRING BOOK FAIR -- Thank you to the new team of Bookfair Coordinators, Eleanore Pernisco, Libby DeVecchi, and Ayesha Mayagotia and also LA Libreria Celene Navarette and Chiara Aroyo-Cruz. Thanks to all who volunteered and those who bought books too!!! Students who won free books in the raffle are those who have ticket numbers 904744, 904751, and 904760. Prizes are in the library. First come, first choice. CHECK THE LOST AND FOUND -- Once again we have quite a collection of lost items! Please check Edison’s Lost & Found for your child’s missing sweater, shirt, jacket, pants, hat, lunch box, food container, water bottle, you name it! Make sure to look in the racks, crates and plastic bags for your child’s missing belongings. Items left behind by the end of the school year will be donated to charity! SUMMER EMERGENCY FUND - The Edison Community Support Group is looking for donations of cash or gift cards for groceries, gas, metro, phone to help members of our community in need through the Summer break. For example a $40 grocery store gift card could help a family in need of support to purchase groceries due to excess medical bills. If you would like to support our cause, please drop off monetary donations or gift cards at the office. PTA BOARD IN AND OUT MEETING -- This Wednesday at 6:00 p.m. we bid farewell and say thank you to the 2017-18 PTA Executive Board Members and welcome the 2018-19 Board Members. Many 2017-18 board members are continuing on for a second year in their current positions – Including PTA President Heidi Vega Aimonetti. Thank you all!

STOP THE SUMMER READING SLIDE We are about to adjourn for over 10 weeks of summer vacation, which sounds great right about now. Unfortunately, there is a well-documented loss of learning over this long summer vacation. The impact is particularly pronounced for low-income children who may not have the same access as do children from higher income families to books and summer enrichment programs. In a dual language program, not reading in your second language all summer can cause a backward slide in achievement in that language– for children from all income backgrounds. What can you do to help children avoid the summer reading slide? Support and require that they read regularly in the summer AND make time to regularly read aloud to them. All children (pre-school through grade 5) can benefit from hearing books read aloud in whichever language(s) their parents and caregivers know best. By reading aloud, you can help children access books that are above their independent reading levels, growing their vocabularies and background knowledge, and strengthening their listening skills. Read fiction and non-fiction. Edison children in Kindergarten through 5th grade should read regularly – at their own reading level – in Spanish. Edison children in 2nd through 5th grade should read regularly in English too. Make sure your children have a “nutritious reading diet” that includes both fiction and non-fiction. Your local public library has good summer reading programs to support literacy – sign your child up for these free programs and make a weekly trip to the library to check out books. Choose books for them to read independently and books for you to read to them! Older children should try to read at least six good-sized chapter books over the summer (3 in English and 3 in Spanish). Younger children who are reading much shorter books should aim for several books a week. If you are reading aloud to your child – every day is ideal, but aim for at least 10 hours over the course of the summer (an hour per week – maybe split up into 3-4 bedtime stories or chapters in a longer book). In addition to summer reading programs at the library, Edison encourages all 2nd-5th graders to participate in the KidBiz Summer Reading Challenge. Students can use their log-ons all summer long to read 20 articles in English and 20 in Spanish, completing the comprehension quizzes with 75% of better accuracy (on the first try). When they complete that challenge, they are automatically entered into a drawing for several tablets/e-readers. We’re also announcing the Edison Summer Reading Challenge for Edison students in PreSchool through 4th Grade (see the attached reading log). Have children read (and/or read to them), complete the reading log, have a parent/caretaker sign it, and return it when school begins. Children who turn in signed reading logs will receive a voucher good for $10.00 in children’s books in Spanish at the fall book fair. Let’s eliminate the summer slide and start strong in 2018-19!

DEL ESCRITORIO DE LA DIRECTORA: EVITEN EL DESLIZ DE LECTURA EN EL VERANO Estamos a punto de cerrar por más de 10 semanas de vacaciones de verano, lo cual suena bueno justo ahora. Desafortunadamente, hay una pérdida de aprendizaje bien documentada durante estas vacaciones largas de verano. El impacto es particularmente pronunciado en niños de familias de bajos recursos quienes tal vez no tengan el mismo acceso que tienen los niños de familias de altos recursos a libros y programas de enriquecimiento. En un programa de doble idiomas, el no leer en su segundo idioma todo el verano puede causar un desliz en reversa en rendimiento en ese idioma – para niños de todo tipo de recursos económicos. ¿Qué podemos hacer para ayudar a los niños a evitar el desliz de lectura en el verano? Apoyarlos y requerir que lean a diario en el verano Y hacer tiempo a diario para leerles a ellos en voz alta. Todos los niños (en los grados preescolar hasta el 5º) pueden beneficiarse de escuchar libros leídos en voz alta en cualquier idioma(s) que sus padres y proveedores de cuidado conozcan mejor. Al leer en voz alta, ustedes pueden ayudar a los niños a tener acceso a libros que son más altos de sus niveles de lectura independientes, aumentando sus vocabularios y conocimiento a fondo, y fortaleciendo sus habilidades de escuchar. Lean ficción y no ficción. Los niños de Edison en del Kindergarten hasta el 5º grado deben leer diario – en su propio nivel de lectura – en español. Los niños de Edison del 2º al 5º grado deben leer diario en inglés también. Asegúrense de que sus hijos tengan “una dieta nutritiva de lectura” que incluye ambos ficción y no ficción. Su biblioteca local pública tiene buenos programas de lectura para el verano para apoyar el alfabetismo – apunten a sus hijos para estos programas gratis y tomen viajes semanales a la biblioteca para sacar libros. ¡Elijan libros para que ellos lean independientes y libros que ustedes les leerán a ellos! Los niños mayores deben tratar de leer por lo menos seis libros de buen tamaño de capítulos durante el verano (3 en inglés y 3 en español). Los niños jóvenes quienes están leyendo libros más cortos deben planear para leer varios libros por semana. Si ustedes están leyendo en voz alta a su hijo/a – todos los días es ideal, pero planeen para por lo menos 10 horas en el transcurso del verano (una hora por semana – tal vez dividirlo en 3 – 4 cuentos a la hora de dormir o capítulos en libros más largos). En adición a los programas de lectura de verano en la biblioteca, Edison anima a todos los estudiantes del 2º al 5º grado a que participen en el Reto de Lectura del Verano en KidBiz. Los estudiantes pueden usar sus códigos todo el verano para leer 20 artículos en inglés y 20 en español, completando los exámenes con un 75% o mejor correctos (en el primer intento). Cuando completen el reto, automáticamente entran a un sorteo para varias tabletas/”e-readers”. También estaremos anunciando el Reto de Lectura del Verano en Edison para Estudiantes de Edison en los grados preescolar al 4º grado (mire la hoja de lectura adjunta). Haga que los niños lean (y/o léanles a ellos), completen la hoja de lectura, lo firma un padre/proveedor de cuidado, y la entregan cuando comiencen las clases. Los niños quienes entreguen las hojas de lectura recibirán un cupón bueno para $10.00 en libros de niños en español en la feria de libros en el otoño. ¡Hay que eliminar el desliz del verano y comenzar el 2018 – 2019 fuerte!
