AMMS F.I.G.H.T. Club was awarded a trophy for being the
middle school that raised the most money for Relay For Life.
Autrey Mills MS teacher Natalie Smith won the Humanities Department's Middle School Reading Cohort Scholastic Classroom Library Make-Over.
Smith was randomly selected from the group of all of the participants with perfect cohort attendance. Smith was excited to win the make-over, but she is also thrilled about the application of the learning strategies in her classroom she's learned as part of the cohort.
"Of all my years teaching, the cohort has been one of the best professional developments I have ever experienced," Smith said. "I really liked how you can use the strategies we learned the next day with kids in my classroom."
The classroom library make-over will benefit her kids as they will have a greater selection of books to read. This opportunity was made possible courtesy of Scholastic Inc.
Teachers and literacy experts agree that children of all ages need to be read to or to read by themselves and to talk about books over the summer. When you read or talk to your young child about books, she develops important language skills, understandings about books and print, and knowledge about how stories are constructed that will help her to become a strong reader and writer. Your school-aged child's summer reading and book discussions will help him maintain his reading skills, improve his reading fluency, and learn new vocabulary and concepts. Most importantly, when parents and children enjoy summer reading together, children develop a love of books and reading that lasts a lifetime. Summer reading lists for all levels
