Summer Soaring 100 Club

To MaST Families of our current students in Grades K-4,

Summer is an important time for students to continue reading and practicing math skills. Numerous studies indicate that students who don’t read or continue practicing their math skills during their summer vacation, see their ability levels stagnate or decline. MaST encourages all students to spend as much time as possible learning over the summer. This year, MaST is starting a new incentive program to support parents in motivating their students throughout the summer, the Summer Soaring 100 Club.

Students will work with parents to use print or digital resources to read or review skills. Parents will document the amount of time spent in each sitting in the boxes on the tracking form. The goal is for parents to sit with their child 100 times to read together, practice reading skills or review math skills, by the end of the summer. Students that complete the 100 boxes will be able to participate in the 100 Club celebration at the beginning of the school year.

A copy of the Summer Soaring 100 Club and a list of digital resources that your child has had access to in their classrooms will be sent home with your child. Please turn in the completed Summer Soaring 100 Club log by Friday, September 1st to your child’s new homeroom teacher.

Have a safe and fun summer of continued learning!

In Memory of Mr. Ryan Reed

Dear MaST Families,

It is with a heavy heart that we inform you of the loss of one of our beloved teachers, Mr. Ryan Reed, who passed away suddenly today. Mr. Reed was an outstanding teacher, coworker, and loved our kids and his job more than anyone I know. He was a MaST Panther at heart and this is truly a great loss to our community.

At this time, we want to honor the privacy of the family. We will release details of the service on our website and Facebook as we find out the information.

He has truly left a mark on our MaST families and culture for years. He touched the lives of many children who will remember him as their superhero, “Zero The Hero,” among the other great memories from settlement camps, talents shows, classroom activities, and anytime Mr. Reed could get on the microphone.

Please come together as a MaST family to keep him and his family in your thoughts at this time of loss and mourning. We celebrate the success of his life and impact on many lives within our school community.

Thank you,

John Swoyer
