SPOTSWOOD, NJ - No more teachers, no more books is a major part of the popular children's rhyme. However, that isn't necessarily true once summertime hits. Summer assignments are available online at the Spotswood School District website.

All students entering grades 4-8 have a summer reading book with a writing assignment to go along with it. Appleby and Memorial Middle School students entering the above grades would have brought home their required reading books prior to the end of school on June 16. The summer reading books were provided by the Spotswood PTA.

Sixth-, seventh- and eighth-grade honors Language Arts students have an additional book and assignment to complete before the start of school in September. All of the  written assignments relating to the Language Arts books for both Appleby and Memorial are available on the Spotswood School District website.

Spotswood High School students entering ninth through twelfth grades who are enrolled in honors and/or advanced placement classes have summer coursework to be completed prior to the start of school. All of the work can be found on the district's website. Simply click on summer work/reading and then on the SHS icon to find the necessary assignments.

In order to avoid the summer slide, educators recommend continuing to read over the summer break. The summer slide is where students loose the academic gains that they made during the school year over the two plus months they are off from school during the long break. Reading at least 20 minutes a day in addition to keeping a vacation journal or daily diary are often suggested ways to keep reading and writing skills sharp.

School starts for Spotswood School District students on Thursday, Sept. 7.
