Some important notes to get us ready for the summer:

 

We are especially excited for this year’s Dore Summer Reading Club.We encourage EVERY student to participate in this wonderful program of leisurely reading, where participants can enjoy read-alouds, art projects, and pick from a huge selection of popular book titles; and even keep some of the books for their personal home library!Summer reading is VERY important in maintaining and expanding children’s love for literature; as well as enhancing their reading skills, helping them become stronger life-long readers.Experts agree that children who read during the summer gain reading skills, while those who do not slide backward. Reading more than 10 books leads to success. Dore’s challenge is 20 books this summer to not only maintain but gain reading skills over the summer.

 

The Dore CSI Summer 2014 program will be 4-weeks beginningTuesday,July 1 –Friday, July 25, 2014 from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.

 

CSI REGISTRATION

The summer program marks the start of a new program year for CSI… 2014-2015 – our third year.That said, it is required that EVERY student participating in CSI before- and after-school activities complete a new CSI Registration packet (available for download at www.DoreBulldogsChicago.org)

 

Keeping our students intellectually engaged over the summer is crucial. A couple hours a day of reading, writing and math computation can help retain academic knowledge over the summer. A trip to the library or our local museums will stimulate curiosity and interest.

We wish you the best this summer. Continue the learning and be safe. We look forward to seeing our children re-energized and ready to learn in the fall.

   

Finally, remember T.E.A. M. (Dore Creating Powerful Learning in the Community)

 

T-Together: Develop a partnership with the school by communicating regularly -two way communication.

E-Encourage - Encourage education by setting learning goals; ask questions /converse with your child about learning.

A-Accountability - Follow up with parent portal, ensure your child completes homework, check daily assignment book, and develop your child’s sense of personal ownership and accountability for their learning.

M-Motivate - Support and inspire your child through positive reinforcement in a structured home routine focused on learning. Cultivate your child’s personal learning goals to acquire college and career readiness.

  

Respectfully,

Dr. E. Alvarez
