The cost per camper is $75.00 and $50.00 for each additional sister. Registration forms can be picked up in the elementary office.
Summer Tutoring Program by Ms. Nikki
This summer I am offering a summer tutoring program that will focus on reading comprehension and note taking skills. We will use the books on the students’ summer reading lists. This way the students will learn valuable skills to use in all of their classes and their ACT tests.
They will also be reading their summer reading books at the same time.
I have found that these are two areas where many students are lacking. Students who attend will be expected to read a certain amount between sessions and take notes on what they have read. We will discuss what they have read, go over what they should have written in their notes, view resources that will help them understand the time period in which the book is set when needed, and focus on what is important to the story as well as other elements students need to know. This will improve their performance in their English classes, their ACT test, and any other course where they have to read and comprehend material. We will also do sample ACT reading passages to begin each session to help them become more comfortable with the type of passages they will have on the actual ACT test.
The cost will be $25.00 per child per session; a $25.00 discount will be given to parents who pay for entire program in advance. Sessions will be held once a week in my classroom on the following Tuesday, June 18, June 25, July 9, July 16, and July 23. It is okay if a student is not able to attend all the sessions. A reading schedule has also been sent to you so that students will know what they have to have read by what date.
Session times will be as follows:
Dual Enrollment 8AM-9 AM
English I 9AM-10 AM
English II 10AM-11 AM
English III (non honors) 11AM- 12 PM
English IV (H) 1PM – 2PM
English III (H) 2PM – 3PM
English IV (NH) 3PM – 4PM
Mrs. Nikki Sonnier
Ms. Katie Cormier will be running the summer A/R program again this year. Please take advantage of this wonderful opportunity to keep your child reading this summer.
Booster Club Skeet Shoot:
The annual sporting clay event for the St. Edmund School Booster Club will be held at Cajun Elite in Evangeline on Saturday, July 13, 2013. For more information or to volunteer please call our event Chairman Mr. Ben Summerlin at 225-252-5917.
It has been wonderful to see students on campus for workouts. It shows their dedication and commitment to be the best they can be. I am also excited to see all the students attending the A/R summer program. It is wonderful to see so many children in the library reading and so many moms attending with them. Ms. Katie is doing a wonderful and job and we certainly thank her for her time and efforts.
Something Special from Our Students:
I learned a few days ago that two of our students did something I feel is very special. Anna Claire Heinen and Gabby Bertrand sold lemonade at Anna Claire’s dad’s office. They made $25.00 for their efforts. I bet your wondering what’s so special about this. These young ladies did not keep the money they donated the $25.00 to the Allie Powell Missions, a mission that helps others. The purpose of this very special mission is to communicate the Gospel, train pastors and leaders around the world and to sponsor people to go on short and long term missions. If you would like to donate to the Allie Powell missions you go visit their website at www.alliepowellmissions.com.
I want to do more recognizing of our special students who do special things in and out of school. If you know of something that our students are doing please let me know what it is so I can recognize them for all the wonderful things they do. We have many wonderful students who do so much it is time we start to brag on them for their love, care and giving.
