Sunset Park Elementary 2014 Required Summer Reading

Summer Reading provides students with an opportunity for recreational reading, personal exploration, and continued intellectual growth.  It may also serve as an essential component of the instructional process in schools.  Research has shown that students who engage in reading throughout the summer improve academically during the following school year.  Sunset Park Elementary is happy to announce our required summer reading list.  These books are available at your public libraries, and neighborhood book stores.  Some titles may still be available in the school office.

THE GREEN RANGERS
Our school is participating in THE GREEN SCHOOL CHALLENGE.

What does it mean to be green? "Green" is more than just a color. It also means taking special steps to protect the environment the water, the land, and the air we breathe. Why green? Plants are green, and without them the Earth wouldn't be such a lovely home for us human beings. 

Sunset Park STEM Academy is going GREEN!!  Help us raise money for our school!!  It's simple!  All you have to do is send us your used, ready to discard ink cartridges!  All types, all sizes!  That's it!  You can send them with your child or simply place them in the box located in front of the office labeled "Empty Ink Cartridges!"  Thank you for supporting our school!

We would like everyone helping and saving electricity and recycling. Attached is a website with great ideas and ways to help our planet!
