As we gear up for summer, I wanted to take a moment to share the end of year document that also contains some supports for the start of 23/24 SY! In this document, you will find information about library books, technology, school supplies, and important dates for next year!
In addition, I wanted to share some summer resources that include math and literacy activities.
Finding Books at Your Child’s Level–In your child’s report card, teachers provided your child’s reading level at the end of March. You can reference this correlation chart to better understand the reading levels. Please consider, in the intermediate grades, reading levels become more complex. Based on a variety of factors, students can access a range of levels. At the end of the day, it’s most important that students are reading and talking about books that excite and engage them! Levels don’t define the child.
Below is a list of resources that your child can access throughout the summer to continue learning.
There are also a few subscription-based programs, some have free trials:
Consider checking into additional resources on Edutopia.
Your children have grown so much this year and have become amazing mathematicians. Summer is a critical time for learning and we want to make sure that all children are continuing to practice their skills over the summer. We have listed some fun options for math practice. We appreciate all that you do to help your children grow and learn each day.

Asbury 2nd – 5th Grade Families,
In the past, each student has kept their chromebook over the summer to use as long as the student was going back to Asbury or heading to a non-charter DPS school the following fall. This year the district is changing how we are doing things. Chromebooks will NOT automatically be taken home at the end of the school year.
In order for your student to take a chromebook home in the summer, families must fill out a survey to Opt-In to have their student bring their chromebook home in the summer.
Summer Opt-In Survey for Families
This is due by Friday, May 19th!
All chromebooks AND chargers that are not being taken home for the summer or if the family has not filled in the opt-in survey, must be returned to school on Tuesday, May 30th.
Each device is assigned to a specific student so if the device along with the charger is not returned, you will be charged for a missing device and/or charger to your my school bucks account.
Asbury kindergarten and first grade Families,
Devices (ipads – kinder and chromebooks – first) will be collected at the end of the school year from all kindergarten and first grade students. They will not be taking them home over the summer.
Please reach out if you have any questions to Amy Ravel (Amy_Ravel@dpsk12.net)
