- Kensington Never Stops Reading Summer Program
This year the tally sheet has been made easier. All you have to do is color in the sun if you read at least 20 minutes each day. You can use sticker, crayons, or anything else to mark off your reading times.
There is a new Bingo Reading Card this year that is recommended for students in the third through sixth grades. The card highlights the growing equity and diversity in children’s literature.
The program starts on the week of June 6th and ends on August 14th.
❑ The 20 minutes count if parents read to their younger children. Or you can alternate back and forth between pages (a good way to check fluency). Read to a brother or a sister or a pet-it all counts!
❑ Very important – hang on to the calendar tally sheet (or whatever you use to record the reading times) so that the sheet can be brought to school in the fall.
❑ The goal is for each child to read 24 hours – that’s only 20 minutes every day! Cross off or color in a sun for each 20 minutes and at the end of the summer have your child bring his or her tally sheet to school to be recognized. If everyone participates this could add up to 180 days or one school year of reading for the entire school!

- About Site Council
Please vote for members for our School Site Council. There are currently three openings for the term ending in 2024 and one opening for the partial term ending in 2023. Ballots are due by May 5th. Fill yours out here.
The School Site Council (SSC) is composed of the school principal and 8-10 parents, teachers and other staff selected by their peers, representing all segments of the school community for the common goal of supporting student success. The SSC does this by developing and monitoring the implementation of the school’s plan known as the Single Plan for Student Achievement. The SSC also determines how certain funds received by the school for this purpose should be spent.
The SSC members are the principal; teacher representatives; other staff representatives; parents/other community representatives, and student representatives at the secondary level with each group selected by their peers.
