At Cheldelin we do not have a required reading program for the summer.  However, we cannot stress too much the value of students reading during the summer months.  “Reading is the brain what exercise is to the body.”

Our philosophy of summer reading is based on the following premises:

Reading can be an enjoyable pastime.
People read for pleasure, not just to acquire information.
Reading is a skill that improves with practice.
Reading can be a family activity; families in which parents read inspire children to read.
Reading is fundamental in providing a solid basis for academic achievement.

For students who do not like to read, we recommend read-alongs.  The important thing here is that the student reads along.

The Benton County Public Library is a wonderful resource.  They have a terrific resource you pre-teen and young adult readers.  This is a great place to start your search.

The following site is a good resource for choice reading books:

Finally, if you want your student to practice more academic reading during the summer, we recommend the free site

“Reading is the brain what exercise is to the body.”

Revised student handbook.

Student Handbook 1415.pdf 


When your student will be absent from either a full or partial day of school, it is very important to report the absence to the school by 9:00 a.m. the day of the absence by calling the school attendance line.  Voicemail is available for attendance messages around the clock. When leaving an attendance message, please give: 1) your name, 2) the student’s first and last name, 3) the date of the absence, 4) the time of the absence, 5) the reason for the absence.

 If you are making plans to take a vacation outside of the scheduled school year vacations/days off, you will need to be preapproved for an excused absence by the Principal or Assistant Principal.

If your student will be picked up at school by anyone other than their own parent or guardian with whom they live, or a person on their emergency contact list, a written permission must be turned into the school office prior to their departure from school.  This is for the safety of all our students.

If your child needs to take medication at school, you must complete a Medication Permission and Administration Form and return it to the school office.  You can obtain this form at the office or by downloading it from the link below.   All medication to be taken by a student while at school must be delivered to the school office by a parent and remain in the health room for safekeeping. No medications, including over the counter medications and herbal remedies, are to be stored in student lockers.

All medications must be in their original containers. Prescription medication must have the pharmacy label with the child’s name, medication name, dosage instructions, doctor’s name and prescription date. Any changes to a prescription dosage or to administration times must be verified by a written prescription from the doctor, addressed to the school.
