  • Principal's Message - Summer Challenge

    Summer is here and it is often a time when students who have made academic gains throughout the school year, slowly slip backwards. As your educational partner, we have developed several key items for your child to have as resources to work on over the summer to maintain & even strengthen their skills.

    Reading during the summer is ESSENTIAL! Significant losses in reading occur over the summer, if children don’t read. I would strongly encourage you and your child to take part in this worthwhile experience. Did you know it is cool to think about school over the summer? I am offering an incentive for all the students at Havel who complete something academic this summer.  If you choose to participate you need to show proof to Mrs. Barel that you contributed to your learning in one or more of the following activities at: 
    http://havel.uticak12.org/  (Just click on the summer literacy and/or summer math tab on the left!)

    Complete the Online Summer Math Packet
    Our Havel Hawks had a busy year learning new math skills and concepts. Mastering all of these skills and concepts is extremely important in order to develop a solid math foundation. The math skills that your child has learned this year must be mastered for your child to be able to understand the new skills that will be taught next year. Each year builds upon the previous year’s math skills and concepts. So any time spent reviewing or reinforcing these skills and concepts will be very beneficial for your child.
    Dreambox (
    DreamBox Learning is a K-5 adaptive online math program that is widely used in US elementary schools. Adaptive means that the program captures every decision a student makes while working in the software and adjusts the student’s learning path in real time, maintaining just the right degree of difficulty and no gaps in understanding.

    Complete the Summer Reading Challenge
    This summer, we will offer our exciting 1000+ minute reading challenge. Books are a great source of imagination and enjoyment for all of us. This summer, record the number of minutes you read each day on the calendar then record the total minutes for the months of June, July, August and up until September 8th. Add up how many minutes you read each month for a grand total of minutes read over the summer. Remember, your goal is 1000+ minutes.

    I am only accepting quality work. If you choose to participate, complete the activities, and return them to me in the fall. I will collect the evidence of participation the first week of school. If you have it, you will be invited to an ice cream party by the principal!  On behalf of the staff at Havel Elementary, I want to sincerely thank you for an amazing year. We will certainly continue our efforts to improve our students’ learning in all areas at Havel next year as well.  Finally, enjoy the summer vacation with your amazing children. Stay safe and have a lot of fun together! Thank you for your continued support of Havel’s learning community. We could not do what we do every day without your support! 

    Happy Summer!

    Mrs. Barel
