To help our students start the next school year ready, MCISD students were able to choose two books to read this summer. We ask your child to read their books and complete the two book reports that were sent along with their books. These two book reports will be their first graded assignments so it is imperative that they complete the assignments and turn them in on the first day of school.
Summer is an important time for students to keep reading and improve their language skills. Make some time every day for reading.
Attached are the book report templates just in case they are needed.

After reading "Lemonade Wars," Mrs. Cantu, Mrs. Rodriguez, and Mrs. Leal's third grade students were encouraged have their own "Lemonade Wars" amongst their classes. They all brought a part of the ingredients and did their own measuring and mixing.
Author, Jaqueline Davies includes math problems, charts and graphs, business plans, business terminology and definitions to engage readers.
The third grade classes are currently reading the next book in the series, "The Lemonade Crime."
H-E-B Palmhurst hosted their first monthly literacy night in collaboration with Midkiff Elementary, on Tuesday, May 16th at 6:00 p.m. in the Literacy Center, showcasing students as the celebrated artists.
Mrs. Illiana Gomez's second grade students created sock puppets with the help of their parents for their selected story, “Wayside School is Falling Down.” They acted out chapters 1 and 4 from the story with their puppets at H-E-B Palmhurst using a festive stage provided by their literacy center. Midkiff students, staff, parents, H-E-B corporate office, and the community were invited to enjoy the show.
The cast of characters were: Sofia Serrano: as the Narrator, Ryan Guzman: as the Delivery Man, Arnold Ochoa: as Louis, the yard teacher, Angelina Garcia: as Mrs. Jewls, the classroom teacher, Jose Garza: as Mac, Christian Ramon: as John, Kiana Lopez: as Allison, and Chloe Sanchez: as Jenny.
Great job Mrs. Gomez and students! You were SPECTACULAR!!
Thank you H-E-B Palmhurst, Mr. A.B. Moreno, and parents for your support!
