2018 Reading is a BLAST with MyON Summer Reading Program!

Dear Families,

Summer is a fun and exciting time for everyone to enjoy the outdoors, spend time with families and friends and simply relax. It is also a perfect opportunity to encourage students to read!

Over the summer, many students experience the summer slide, which can rob them of gains they made the previous school year. Children who do not read over the summer can lose more than two months of reading achievement. Unfortunately, summer reading loss is cumulative.

Together, we can help your student avoid the summer slide! Did you know that your student has access to myON, a personalized collection of more than 5,800 digital books to read over the summer on computers, laptops and other devices anytime, anywhere? myON contains books for every age, interest and reading level that will keep them engaged and learning all summer long!

To help encourage reading this summer, myON has created a national reading contest to motivate kids to read and will reward top readers with cool prizes. The theme of this year’s contest is Reading is a BLAST this summer with myON. Please encourage your student to read as much as possible - they will be entered for a chance to win by reading 10 or more books!

Be sure to follow myON on Facebook (myONFanClub) and @myONreader for important updates and special events during the summer. Go to https://support.myon.com/resources-tutorials/overview to learn more about myON this summer.

We hope you enjoy the 2018 Reading is a BLAST with myON Summer Reading Program!

Happy reading!
The myON Team

This year’s Crystal Apple Award recipient is Lori Marett. Lori is a dedicated educator who cares deeply about student success. For many years she worked as an English teacher, ESL instructor and built the High Honors Program.  More recently, she has transformed the library into a high-interest, student-centered environment where all feel welcome. Lori spends countless hours helping students and teachers, planning programs to encourage reading, such as Battle of the Books and March Madness.  In addition, she researches the best books for the library. It’s not unusual to see Lori talking with students about their favorite books. She encourages students to write what books they want to read on her book recommendations list because she values their opinions. The library is the heart of the school, and Lori is a vital part of our school’s success.

Not only is Lori a phenomenal librarian, she is also a valued member of the faculty and a dear friend.  Congratulations Lori!

Maple Mountain High School’s STEM Ambassadors club had another successful year.  Having the opportunity to meet with students from Sierra Bonita and Mapleton Elementary schools, the STEM ambassadors taught principles of coding to all fifth grade students.  This was done by teaching stage two of code.org.  While some elementary students struggled, other students made it to stage three.  Jared Martin said the following, “Throughout my high school career, this has been one of my favorite classes that I have taken.  Most definitely my favorite part about this class has been teaching and connecting with the kids.”  Nikelle Barney stated, “Every time I walked into the class the kids would always be so happy to see me and my partner, calling out our names and telling us about how far they’ve gotten.”  Thanks to all the fifth grade students and STEM ambassadors for making this another successful year!x
