All good things must come to an end. After 48 years at Bangor West, our fish/tank will have a new home. A huge thanks to Mr. Tom Walsh who has taken tremendous care of our fish and has voluntarily given up his time and money for all 48 years the fish have been at West. Mr. Walsh has done a great job working behind the scenes to provide opportunities and smiles to so many at Bangor West.

One of the easiest and possibly most important things to do, in my opinion, during this time is to read with your child daily (try for 20 minutes a day). Reading is a great way to bond and spend some downtime together. While reading you are working on language and literacy skills. If you do not have books at home there are some great books you can read online. Simply search in any web browser, "free online books for kids". Reading daily with your child may look different depending on the age of your child. For example, you might read to your child. You might echo read with your child (parent reads a page, child reads the same page after parent). Your child might read to you (parent assisting in good decoding strategies). You might read alongside your child with your own reading material. No matter the age of your child...don't forget to talk about the story after. Here is the rest of the daily reading calendar adapted from St. Claire Calendar: RESA. This can be partnered with your daily reading. https://drive.google.com/open?id=1Gn5ZXxGciaq2DIEfSfVOiO4J7lw5I50v Decoding strategies: 1. Reread and think-what makes sense? Sound the 1st part of the word. 2. Check the picture 3. Cover the ending- and find a known part. 4. Chunk the word- example-pro/tec/tion. 5. Connect-does this word remind me of another word I know? example-cloud, proud. Thinking of you all, Ms. DeSanto

Mrs. Schomaker’s 2nd grade class is now Mrs. Arnold’s. Mrs. McDonald’s 3rd grade class is now Mrs. Schomaker’s. Mrs. Kochany’s class is now Mrs. Labelle, and finally, Mrs. St. Charle’s class is Mrs. Lemuel. We are very excited to have Ms. Herr join us this year after student teaching with us last year! Due to our ongoing construction, our Meet & Greet/curriculum night will still be at our later date of September 5th @ 5 as previously scheduled. All school supplies can be brought to school this Tuesday and paperwork sent home on Tuesday can be returned prior to our Meet and Greet. Breakfast and lunch are still free for all students this year so no need to pack food or bring money unless you’d like to prepare your own lunch. Please fill out the paperwork coming home on the first day to help us continue this process. Popcorn will be 50 cents this year due to climbing costs and continuous repairs needed on the popcorn machine. We look forward to a great school year. If you have any questions or concerns please call or email us. We will hopefully be moving back into our office tomorrow. Have a great day!

Do you know a girl who is curious about technology? Camp Infinity is a one-week summer technology camp for girls entering grades 5th-8th in Fall 2019. Camp Infinity introduces girls to computer and internet technologies through hands-on activities. Campers are split into two groups according to the Fall 2019 grade level: 5th-6th grade and 7th-8th grade. Campers in grades 5th-6th will create their own web page using HTML and program Dash robots. Campers in grades 7th-8th will create their own web page using HTML and program EV3 or Vex robots. In addition, students will participate in mini- sessions that highlight programming skills and real-world uses of technology.
