Spirit Grant Presentation to Deer Path Middle School

The Spirit of 67 Foundation board members visited each of the four District schools to announce the grants awarded for the upcoming 2021-22 school year. Thanks to the exceptional support and generosity of our donors, our board and the businesses who sponsor our various fundraising activities, the Spirit of 67 Foundation is thrilled to award 18 grants representing $140,000 in new funding. This is in addition to the $180,000 of off-cycle grants awarded in October 2020 to help with learning in the time of COVID-19. Together, this year the Spirit is proud and grateful to have gifted back over $320,000 in grants to benefit our students!

summer reading information

With summer approaching, we know that students and families are ready for some downtime. While the summer months are a wonderful opportunity to relax and rejuvenate, the break from the rigors of school can cause a lag in learning. Research demonstrates that students must read at least three challenging books during the summer break simply to maintain fluency and comprehension skills; a minimum of five such books is necessary to improve on any reading weaknesses. In addition, our goal is to foster and encourage a lifelong habit of reading - for pleasure as well as knowledge - in our students.

We have developed summer reading tasks with this in mind. This year, the requirements for each grade level are listed online at DPM Summer Reads. Our hope is that when students are selecting their novels they will choose ones that truly interest them. If your child is unsure about what to read, links to suggested titles are located within the website.
