Summer Reading

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Are you looking for an inexpensive and fun solution to ensure your child continues the progress

they’ve made in reading this school year? Look no further than your local library! Studies show that

when students are engaged in educational activities during the summer, they avoid the

“Summer Slide,” a loss in academic achievement or reading skills.

Please use our summer reading lists to keep your children engaged in reading over the summer. Our

K-2 Summer Reading List comes from the Texas Library Association 2 by 2 Committee and the list for

grades 3-5 comes from the 2016-17 Texas Bluebonnet Award List. We hope that you read along with

your child to discuss each book and help make it come alive to enhance their love of reading!

Get your child involved in several reading incentive programs throughout the summer: Check out your

local public library for special story time events, movies, computer classes, summer reading

program prizes and reading trophies or sign up with one of the programs below:

Scholastic.com – You can find additional summer book lists, reading logs, book review templates,

certificates and activities for you and your children to engage in under the “Parents” tab. Check out

the links below for additional tips.

Pizza Hut – Book it “Summer Reading Challenge” is coming soon! – Register your child to engage in

reading activities and games with a chance to win prizes. Check out their “Read And Do Activities” on

www.bookitprogram.com to engage your reader in various books and activities to give your readers a

more engaging experience, increase their comprehension and love of reading!

There are lots of ways to maintain your child’s academic progress. We wish you a fun and productive

summer. Happy Reading!

Sincerely,

School of Science and Technology Discovery

Healthy Summer Meals for Kids at NO COST

When the academic year ends and many school cafeterias close, we know kids still need nutritious meals to help nurture mind, body and spirit.
 
As a school and community leader, you can ensure more students get free healthy meals during the summer vacation by spreading the word about the Summer Food Service Program. The Texas Department of Agriculture administers this U.S. Department of Agriculture program to connect Texas children in need with good nutrition during the summer months.


Congratulations to SST-Discovery Teachers of the Year

 
 
We are pleased to announce the 2017 Teachers of the Year (TOTY)  for SST.  Both Ms. Wall and Ms. Johnson will now represent SST at the ESC Region 20 level.  The TOTY selected at the regional level will compete for the Texas Teacher of the Year in the fall and the Texas Teacher of the Year will compete for the US TOTY.  The 2016 National Teacher of the Year was announced last week in Washington, D. C. with festivities including an event at the White House.
 


2017 SST Elementary Teacher of the Year
 
Amber Johnson, who has taught PK, K, and 2nd grade, is the 2017 School of Science and Technology Elementary Teacher of the Year. She also serves as a reading interventionist for grades K-5, Gifted and Talented Coach for grades K-3 and is the Response to Intervention Coordinator for K-8. She graduated from Texas Tech University with a Masters of Elementary Education Degree, and currently teaches at SST-Discovery in San Antonio. Ms. Johnson shared this about teaching:“The most rewarding part of teaching to me are the positive relationships that I build with students, their families, and my co-workers. Building relationships with my students shows them that I care and respect them as individuals, but it also allows me to help instill a passion for learning in them. When our community of teachers, parents, and students work together all of our students can have their best possible outcomes.”
 
 2017 SST Secondary Teacher of the Year
 
Corinne Wall is the 2017 Secondary School of Science and Technology Teacher of the Year. She currently is a teacher at SST-Discovery and teaches eighth grade math as well as serving as the math department chair and a mentor teacher. Ms. Wall earned a BS from Texas A&M at College Station and a MA from Texas State University. Ms. Wall shared this about being a teacher: “I am very passionate about what I do. My reward is watching the potential I see in my students come to fruition. I often hear people speak about our future as if the next generations is going to leave us in a state of uncertainty, and as a teacher, I get a front row seat to tomorrow’s leaders. I get to shape and inspire them. Watching a student come to the realization that there’s something beyond what they thought there were capable of—that there’s a norm outside the failure they’ve experienced in the past—that’s my reward.”
