Learning never stops…

Happy Summer (2)

Learning never stops for our students at White Oak Middle School.  Summer is a wonderful time to pick up a book and read, invent something new and create lots of summer fun.  Thanks to Wonderopolis and Scholastic books, we were able to give our students a gift to help them have an awesome summer vacation. Scholastic donated over eight hundred new books.  Every student received one or more of the following titles:

The Penderwicks on Gardam Street by Jeanne Birdsall

Scat by Carl Hiassen

Maggie Bean Stays Afloat by Tricia Rayburn

The Secret Identity of Devon Delaney by Lauren Barnholdt

Blown Away by Joan Hiatt Harlow

The 39 Clues by Peter Lerangis

War Horse by Michael Morpurgo

Skeleton Creek by Patrick Carmen

Each student received information about Camp Wonderopolis from our friends at the National Center for Families Learning.

Keeping kids and their families learning together throughout the summer and out-of-school time, Camp Wonderopolis can help build vocabulary, background knowledge in science, reading comprehension, critical thinking, and other literacy skills along the way.

The best part was meeting with every student and wishing them well for the next year.  We will miss our eighth graders as they advance to high school, and we will see our current sixth and seventh graders next year. Happy reading!
