THE PRINCIPAL’S MESSAGE

June 15/Required Summer Reading

Dear Jahn Families,

Thank you for another fantastic year! During the summer, it is important for students to continue reading every day. Students at each grade level will be required to read a book this summer and be prepared to discuss it the first week of school. Unfortunately, we are not able to purchase the books for the students this year. Families are responsible for buying the book on their own or checking it out from a Chicago Public Library. Below is the required reading list for this summer. Students read the book of the grade-level they will be in next year. For example, if your child is currently in 4th grade, then they will read “The War that Saved My Life”.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns.

Sincerely,

Michael Herring

Principal

Estimadas familia,

Gracias por otro año fantástico! Durante el verano, es importante que los estudiantes sigan leyendo todos los días. Este verano, se requiere que los estudiantes en cada nivel de grado lean un libro este verano y estén preparados para dialogar sobre el libro la primera semana de clases. Desafortunadamente, no somos capaces de comprar los libros para los estudiantes este año. Las familias son responsables de comprar el libro por su cuenta o rentarlos en una biblioteca pública de Chicago. A continuación se muestra la lista de libros requeridaos por nivel para este verano. Los estudiantes leen el libro del nivel de grado que estarán en el próximo año. Por ejemplo, si su hijo se encuentra actualmente en4º grado, entonces van a leer "The war that saved my life" para el 5o grado.

Por favor, no dude en ponerse en contacto conmigo con cualquier pregunta o preocupación.

Atentamente,

Michael Herring
