 SUMMER READING Current Grades pre-K-4 - going in to K-5 

 Build a Better World…READ!

Fairfield Public schools is once again collaborating with the Fairfield Public library for our summer reading program. The public library has developed a fun and engaging reading tracker and online system to record a student’s reading.  Registration opens June 1st at the Main and Woods Branch Library or online at the children’s summer reading page. If you registered last summer, your log-in information will be the same.

Go online to your Summer Reading account and log the number of minutes you’ve read, beginning June 21st. Paper Logs are available for readers who prefer to be “offline.” Every 200 minutes you log online, you get to the next level in the “Hall of Champions”!

Students can log their reading minutes each day on their account. This account can be accessed from any device that has an internet connection. Explore the library’s website for more information. Sign up for summer reading and enjoy performers, activities and raffles to win great prizes!

At the end of the summer, we will total how many minutes our MH students have read. Our goal is to read at least 10,000 minutes as a school community and have 100% participation!

All students are invited to the Fairfield Public Library Kick-Off Party on Wednesday, June 21st at 10:00 a.m. at Penfield Pavilion, Fairfield. There will be a sand castle contest and prizes when you register for summer reading! Please see the kickoff party flyer for more information. NOTE: A Fairfield Beach Sticker is required to access Penfield parking lots.

Need help choosing a great book to read? Browse the recommended book lists created by Fairfield librarians with your interests in mind. Find fantasy, mystery, series, graphic novels, and some of the best new books of 2016/2017 here.

Parents, please remember to read aloud to your children too! This is true for even older elementary students. Although a child can read at a certain level, his/her “listening” level may be far beyond that. Children can enjoy more complicated plots than those they can read themselves. Have a wonderful time reading and enjoying books this summer!

Look for the Good Project- Mill Hill  
Welcome to Mill Hill Elementary School, a home for the mind and heart. Mill Hill School opened its doors as a new school in September 1991 after a 10-year closure. There are currently about 400 students enrolled in grades K-5. We are fortunate to have a beautiful facility including dedicated rooms for our art and music instructional programs. Mill Hill is committed to utilizing technology and we have an up-to-date Media Center, which includes a full lab for student use and a fully networked building with mobile laptop carts. In addition, our core curriculum is aligned with the Common Core State Standards with a major emphasis placed on the development of students as critical thinkers and problem solvers. Along with an experienced staff open to innovation and collaboration, we have a dedicated and supportive parent community and PTA. Through programs like Above and Beyond, Fairfield Arts for Youth, High Tech/High Touch, and the Mill River Lab, students go beyond traditional requirements to pursue and extend their learning. Each year we review the achievement of our students and develop a school improvement plan to address areas of concern.
