Summer Tip From Mr. La Rue

Research has shown that summer reading offers one of the greatest benefits because it improves comprehension and vocabulary regardless of the subject. Reading is most effective when a parent is involved, according to a Harvard University study. There are numerous activities parents and other adults can do with children. These ideas include:


  • Read: Parents should read to their child every day. Children improve more quickly when an adult asks questions about the material and makes the child re-read difficult passages. Books are too difficult for a child if he or she does not understand five or more words in a 100- word section. Also, set an example and make sure the child sees you reading.


  • On the road: Play “I Spy” with road signs for numbers, colors and shapes. Ask older children to estimate and calculate the travel time to a destination.


  • Get outdoors: Take children to parks and trails for walks or to ride bicycles, or plant a garden or flowers together. Spend time before the outing to gather information and ask children about the plants and wildlife they encounter. In your city: Take trips to the museum or other cultural amenities during free admission days. Find free or inexpensive camps through your city’s parks and recreation department, school or other groups.


  • In the kitchen: Allow a child to help out by measuring ingredients and reading recipes. Ask more challenging questions such as how many pints are in a quart and how to divide ingredients.


  • Move it: Attend summer music festivals with your children and dance together. Sign up your


Thank you for a wonderful school year. I hope you have a fantastic summer. I will truly miss everyone.  


Best Wishes,

With the passage of Senate Bill 172, many students who were unable to pass the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) can now receive their diploma.


As far back as 2006, when the exit exam became a requirement for graduation, students who didn’t pass the CAHSEE were not able to graduate and receive their diploma. SB 172 changes that. Any former student who completed grade twelve in the 2003-04 school year—or a subsequent school year—and met all applicable graduation requirements other than the passage of the CAHSEE may contact their high school office and fill out a request for records review.


Once the graduation status is verified, the records office will mail out the diploma to the individual’s current mailing address.


Stressing the importance of offering nutritious meals to children during the summer months, Twin Rivers School District announces a FREE Summer Nutrition Program for children 18 years of age and under.


“This program helps fills a void,” says Nutrition Services Director Jill Van Dyke. “We are helping parents meet the nutritional needs of their children during the summer months when free and reduced-price school meals are typically unavailable.”


The Summer Food Service Program is funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and administered by the California Department of Education. Twin Rivers is an equal opportunity provider and employer.
