We hope that you all had a wonderful summer break and are ready to dive right back into school. I have lots of new plans and ideas for the media center this school year. Let’s get started!!
Parents read with your child over the summer. JCPS and the Johnston County Public Library have partnered together to allow students to read books online. Click this link for more information Student Access You may visit the public library in Kenly or Smithfield. If you are a resident of Johnston County, you may obtain a library card for FREE! Not only can students get books from the public library, they may read ebooks online. For information on ebooks that Glendale-Kenly offers, visit Mrs. Nixon’s webpage or contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org
Reasons for Reading over the summer:
- Students can lose up to 25 percent of their reading level over the summer.
- Students can lose up to three months of their education over the summer.
Ways families can make Reading fun over the summer:
- Make activities with books
- Visit the public library
- Lead by example ie parents read over the summer also
- Help children find a consistent time to read daily
- Relax and allow children to read what they choose over the summer
- Read aloud with children
Help your child from slipping backwards over the summer. Reading just four books over the summer can prevent the summer slide, and can actually increase a student’s reading level.
Glendale-Kenly wants to encourage each student to read at least four books this summer. But, we don’t see students every day in June, July and August. Parents do! We need your help with this. Encourage your child to read at least 30 minutes daily. Allow students to read whatever they would like.
Things to remember:
Read 30 minutes daily
Visit your local library
Below are some tips that we discuss with students so they understand how to care for our books.
- Keep your book in a Ziplock bag.
- Keep your book away from water, juice and food.
- Always have clean hands when reading your book.
- Do not write or scribble in your book.
- Keep your book away from small children and pets.
- Turn the pages of your book carefully.
- Do not fold the pages of your book.

Every JCPS parent must fill out the Second Semester Choice form to choose either the Virtual Program OR face-to-face instruction for each of their students. The Second Semester Choice form is to be filled out for ALL students in grades PreK-12. If a child is going to participate in face-to-face instruction for the second semester, the parent will be asked to fill out transportation information for the student in the form. A form for each student should be completed by Nov. 30.
Information on social distancing in school settings has been recently updated by the NC Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS). Upon receiving information from the NCDHHS, we consulted with the Johnston County Public Health Department on the impact these updates will have on our school system. This ongoing collaboration continues to guide our decision-making as students return to classrooms for in-person instruction.
