Dear El Morro Families,
With all of the end of the year celebrations going on, and summer ahead, it is hard to believe that we are already planning the 2015-2016 school year!
I am excited and honored to be your next El Morro PTA President. This is a responsibility that I do not take lightly, and I will strive to represent you with the utmost integrity. I would like to thank Holly Anderton for her organized, thoughtful leadership over the past year.
The success of every organization is based on one very important component – its people. I am thrilled that in the El Morro community we have some of the most hard working, brightest and dedicated volunteers. I encourage all parents and family members to become involved in the PTA and keep driving for excellence at our school. Each one of us has unique talents, strengths, resources and skills that are desperately need to make El Morro what it is.
I am grateful to work with such an outstanding team of individuals, Program Chairs and Executive Board Members who selflessly give their time, effort and energy toward the betterment of our school. I know that the upcoming school year is going to quickly be upon us, I hope that you all have a wonderful summer and I look forward to seeing you at the September association meeting.
El Morro PTA President
Parents and teachers worry that reading skills kids have built over the academic year will be lost or slide over the summer. This includes continuing to develop reading fluency, vocabulary, speaking skills and writing skills. To help keep literacy skills sharp this summer El Morro is once again issuing the Principal’s Summer Reading Challenge.
Students in grades K-2 must read at least 15 books at or above their reading level to meet the challenge and students in grade 3-5 must read at least eight (8) books at their level to meet the challenge. Every student who meets the challenge, and returns their summer reading list to Principal Duddy in September signed by their parents, will be invited to have a Popsicle with the Principal at the end of September.
Here are links to recommended reading for K – 5 students:
