Dear Parents/Guardians of Incoming 4th and 5th Graders,
My name is Mrs. Neubert, and I am going to be your child’s math teacher next year. In past years, teachers have utilized summer packets to assist students in keeping up with their math skills and to lessen regression over the summer.
“Teachers across the country use reading logs and calendars to encourage daily/nightly reading. Research shows that children who read at least twenty minutes a night most often perform on or above grade level in language arts.” (Kathryn Starke)
At Young Scholars we understand the importance of literacy in the home and therefore we encourage your student to read for 20 minutes each day over the summer break. These 20 minutes of reading, depending on your child’s grade, can be listening to a story, reading with an adult or independent reading. Books should be on your child’s level, which means they should not be too easy or hard.
Parents & Young Scholars, Field Day was very successful! The PTO wants to thank all the volunteers who helped make things run so smoothly. Big thanks to all the teachers who volunteered. Awesome job everyone. Check out pictures of the big event on our website.

On June 4th, Young Scholars celebrated it’s 2nd Annual 8th Grade Graduation. Friends, family and teachers gathered together to watch and honor our 14 students as they walked across the stage to receive their diplomas. We had several guest speakers and a musical performance by two of our 8th grade graduates. A special thank you to the PTO for providing our guests with refreshments after the ceremony.
