June 2017 


Dear Mill Creek Towne Families:


Now that the school year is ending and summer is about to begin, we look to our parents/guardians to encourage children to continue reading and writing throughout the summer.  In order to support you and your child, we are providing a reading log and writing activities that will help the students retain the skills that they’ve acquired during the past year.


The reading log and writing activities are an excellent way to support your child’s academic progress and keep your child reading and writing throughout the summer.  Students are encouraged to read as many books as possible and record the titles, author, genres, and minutes read on the Summer Reading Log.  Each child should strive to read 20 minutes each day.    


In addition to the Summer Reading Log, we would like each student to complete 4 writing assignments from the Summer Writing activity sheet.  Students should select one writing activity from each column of the READ chart to complete throughout the summer. If possible, please choose a different activity than you chose last year.    


Please have your child return the Summer Reading Log and Summer Writing activities to his/her classroom teacher by Friday, September 8, 2017, for recognition of his/her work.   


Thank you for supporting your child with summer reading and writing!  If you have any questions please contact Amy Hall (Reading Specialist) at 



Thank you,

Amy Hall
