We are thrilled to announce the Menlo Park Summer Reading Program is back for another year. This program, which is graciously organized by parents Dr. Casey and Mrs. Banaag, encourages students to complete the bingo board (found here) as they read books throughout the summer. Students in grades K-4 are asked to return the completed bingo boards to their homeroom teacher in September and the class with the most completed boards wins an ice pop party. Copies of the bingo boards were already sent home with your child, but can also be located on the left. We hope to see all the students participating and falling in love with great books over the summer months.
Need some books to stimulate your mind over the summer? Check out the summer book lists below:

Kindergarten - Fifth Grade 1:1 Device Initiative
In September, all students in grades Kindergarten through Fifth grade will have their own device provided by the district. Students in Kindergarten and First grade will receive an iPad while students in Second through Fifth grade will receive a Chromebook. Students who had a Chromebook during the 14-15 school year will not get the same Chromebook for the 15-16 school year. While not a mandatory supply, there are cases available for the Chromebook through different vendors like Amazon. If you are interested in purchasing a cover for the Chromebook, please note that the device is a HP Chromebook 14 -SMB (14 inch screen).
Here are a sample of links where Chromebook cases can be purchased:

As of September 2016, the birthday celebration procedures have changed at Menlo Park School. Here are the new procedures as outlined in the Parent/Student Handbook:
Beginning September 2016, birthday celebrations will no longer include food/drinks/snacks.
Children’s birthdays will be celebrated with a song and parents may choose to come in and read a short story/picture book (like our mystery reader) at a time prearranged with the teacher and/or send in a book for the classroom library with your child's name, and a short dedication statement on the inside cover of the book.
