Dear Parents/Guardians,

Each summer I have used my newsletter article to make a sales pitch to families to encourage their children to read over the summer. This is with good reason. The “Summer Slide” is one of the most dangerous and preventable plagues on the promotion of reading development.  Each summer numerous students regress several months in their reading fluency as a result of taking the summer months off from reading. As a result, it often takes students until Thanksgiving break in order to get back to where they were before summer started in their reading fluency. So PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE have your child participate in the Summer Reading Challenge. It can be a lot of fun for all involved and it is a pleasure each year for Mrs. O’Shaughnessy and I to watch your children return in the fall with their filled in sheets knowing they earned an opportunity to participate in our Summer Reading Challenge Party! Last year 41 students read over 1,000 minutes and 70 total students participated in the challenge all together for a grand total of 69,457 minutes read! I believe that, with your help, we can double these totals.

To learn more about the Summer Reading Challenge, please return to the home page of our website.

With that being said, I cannot devote my entire newsletter to this topic as I have some important information to share with you the parents that I have worked in promoting the educational development of your children. In the 2014-15 School Year I will no longer be the performing the duties that I once did as it pertains to Elementary School Supervision. These duties will now be shared by Mrs. O’Shaughnessy and our newly appointed K-12 Assistant Principal Mrs. Pam Ratliff.  Beginning September 1, when you have questions and concerns related to general education with your little ones you will now be contacting

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at 688-4411 or email me at dmunn@ccsknights.org.

Sincerely,

Dale R. Munn, Jr.
Director of Student Services
CSE Chairperson, School Psychologist
