Just as learning does not end when school lets out, neither does the need for good nutrition. The Seamless Summer Option (SSO) provides free, nutritious meals to help the children and students in the Round Rock community get the nutrition they need to learn, play, and grow, throughout the summer months when they are out of school. Children aged 1-18 and persons over 18 years of age who are determined by a state or local public agency to be mentally or physically disabled are eligible to receive free meals. No applications are necessary to drop in and receive a meal.

Callison Elementary SSO times and dates:

June 13-July 15
Mon-Fri
Breakfast: 8:00-8:30
Lunch 12:00-12:30

Dear Parents,

We hope you are all off to a great summer start! While our teachers are excited about summer break, they still have their students on their mind. Many teachers dread the “Summer Slide.” If you haven’t heard about the “Summer Slide,” it is not a fun water park or playground slide! When students leave for summer break they think it is a break from anything school related. Many students end up sliding backwards and losing skills they learned throughout the school year. Research shows that students can lose two months or more of learning. At Callison, we want to provide you with ideas to prevent the “Summer Slide” over the next few months. Please keep an eye out for our e-mails this summer as we provide you with tips and ideas to keep our students off the “Summer Slide.” Take a look below for a few ideas to start you off!

The most important thing you can keep up over the summer is 20 minutes of reading daily! To encourage this daily reading habit, I am giving away two “Mark-My-Time Digital Bookmarks”. Please complete the Google form for your chance to win. I will pick two winners this week and have the timers available for pick-up or mailed to you. I will notify winners via e-mail. http://goo.gl/forms/ fEvdMTTvD6komFSE3

  • Round Rock Library Summer Reading Challenge – The Round Rock Public Library is offering a Summer Reading Challenge for children of all ages. Students can earn prizes just for reading! I participated last year with my daughter and I can’t wait to sign up again this year.
  • Can’t make it to the library? No problem! The Round Rock library offers digital e-books for checkout through the OverDrive app on your iphone, ipad or home computer! http://roundrock.lib.overdrive.com/66E9E391-9885-4F3E-ACAC-27E9CB9E0CC1/10/45/ en/Default.htm
  • H-E-Buddy Summer Reading Club – HEB knows that “Texas summers are made for adventures, and some of the best adventures you find are in books, so find a stack of books and start exploring.” Read and log 10 books to mail in for a fun t-shirt reward. Check out this link for more information.
  • Half-Price Books – Half-Price Books is helping Feed Your Brains this summer with their reading log. Kids 8th grade and under can log 300 minutes (solo or with a parent/guardian) to earn bucks for purchasing new books. It’s a great program to encourage reading a little each day!
  • Barnes and Noble – Download the journal, and begin the Summer Reading Triathlon! Barnes and Noble is celebrating its 20th anniversary of their summer reading program, and after completing, kids can choose a free book from the Barnes and Noble selection.
  • BookPeople – I’m an Austin girl and I often take day trips downtown and take advantage of the Book People events. It’s a really cool local book store and they are offering some reading incentives this summer! Go by the store to pick up your summer reading bookmark for your age level, track the books you’re reading and return it before school starts. Students will add their name to the Wall of Summer Reading Stars and receive a BookPeople gift certificate.
  • Book Adventure from Sylvan – Kids in grades K-8 can read books online, take quizzes on them, and earn points for prizes. Parents can monitor each kid’s progress and also access resources to encourage reading. Book Adventure seems to be a year-round program, but I am certainly looking forward to saving it for summer! They also include a summer list with books listed by grade levels for help choosing titles.
  • Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge – This program is great motivation for kids who love the screen! Scholastic is encouraging kids to be a reading superhero and log minutes all summer to unlock online stories and earn rewards. Parents can also jump on board and find book lists and activities to encourage time together.
  • Chuck E. Cheese – So maybe you’ve got a kindergartener you are encouraging to read, or a three year old who could use a boost in her table manners (I’m a pro with fly by feeding). With the rewards calendar, you can make reading part of your daily summer routine, but also encourage a variety of good behaviors and earn tokens for play place visits. I may or may not be taking advantage of this one for the three year old previously mentioned.
  • PBS Kids Summer Reading Camp – This do-it-yourself camp looks like it has preschoolers and early elementary written all over it! There are themed weeks complete with printables and extension activities.
