Summer Reading & Math

Dear Incoming Newcomb Students and Families,

Summer is right around the corner! While we encourage you to spend quality time with friends and family, we also hope that you take some time out of each day throughout the summer for reading. Reading will help to keep your brain sharp while also increasing student motivation and help to lead you to improved academic performance. All students will be a part of our 2022 One Book, One School Read Something Amazing Summer Reading Program! All students will receive a summer reading book  "Wonder" by R.J. Palacio, which will be distributed by your 5th-grade language arts teacher. The summer reading assignment will be posted on our website and can also be accessed by using the Summer Enrichment Form within this assignment.

In addition to summer reading, we are asking every student to complete the summer math work and practice basic math facts to help prepare you for 6th grade by accessing the Summer Enrichment Form and using the provided link for students entering 6th Grade. Complete these assignments to earn your chance to win prizes!

Please complete all assignments before September 15, 2022. If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Chiarella, Supervisor of Math, Science, & Technology at dchiarella@pemb.org, Mrs. Germano, Supervisor of ELA and Social Studies at mgermano@pemb.org, or the Main Office at Newcomb Middle School.

ATTENTION STUDENTS: You've got this! Take your time, do your best, and showcase your skills!

Sincerely,
Mrs. Walulak
Principal at Newcomb Middle School
