 Vikings! Want to get caught up before school even starts next fall? Check out the reading
    lists of your English Teachers’ TeacherWeb sites and read one of the books for the summer.
    What better way to ensure success than to work on some of the fun stuff over the summer .

 Are you a Senior next year? Looking forward to enjoying your final year at Irvington?
    Make it even better by thinking about your QUEST benchmark early! As you enjoy your
    final high school summer, consider a topic, a subject, maybe even a consultant! The more
    you think about it and maybe (even!) line things up over the summer, the more fun your
    senior year will be!

 NETIQUETTE: Not sure how to behave? How much information to give? Whether to use
    your real name for an email address? Parents - want to know what your student should or
    should not do online? Some of the answers can be found at the links provided by the
    American Library Association at

 Summer Habits - Zombie Teens! Do you, like many other youth in our country today, turn
    off your mind for the brief fun of summer? Try not to! No, I don’t mean study all of the
    time, or even study at all, but THINK…about things you like, hobbies, careers, school
    choices for when you graduate. Think about the latest blockbuster film release and why it
    was such a hit with the teen crowd, or maybe the latest R & B single, and who produced it,
    and why it’s selling so well to groups like your friends, or other groups of people. Think
    about … well - anything! But continue to use your mind over the summer, not just enjoy
    video games, hanging out with friends, watching movies and t.v. all day, and long walks on
    the beach… 

Not sure how to support your student @ Irvington? There are MANY ways, but here at the
Irvington Library, we think the best way is to support your child’s love of reading. With state
funding at an all-time low (we received sixty-six cents/student 2005-2006), any help and support
would be greatly appreciated!

Please support your Irvington High School Library in any of the following ways:
-gift cards for borders, half price books, and office depot
-checks made payable to the Irvington High School library
-purchase a book by viewing the wish list of Suzie Wittenberger on www.amazon.com
