myOn Digital Library for Meridian K-5th Grade Students
MyOn Event at SVHS - July 19 6-7 pm -- Bring Your Electronic Device!
On July 19th Meridian School District 223 is opening their doors to parents and families of pre-K through 5th grade Meridian students to experience what myON can do for their elementary children. The myON event will be held at Stillman Valley High School multi-purpose room from 6 until 7pm.
MyON is an online, interactive, digital library that offers unlimited access to thousands of enhanced digital books, dynamically matched to each individual student’s interests, Lexile® reading level and grade level, along with a suite of literacy tools that foster engagement and achievement.
Deana Simpson, Meridian CUSD 223 instructional coach says, “The remarkable thing about myON is that it’s built from where our students stand with a digital platform in mind. Students can read and interact with the text in their own unique way while enjoying reading from a viewpoint their generation is drawn towards.”
A very excited student, Josie from Monroe Center Elementary, reacted to myON and when asked what she thought she remarked, "MyON is a very fun website. There's a ton of books to choose from. It gives you information about the book, like grade level, how many pages it is, and how long the audio is. You can highlight sections and make notes. You can read the book or play the audio and have the book read to you, which is fun for riding in the car. It also tracks how long you read from week to week and month to month. MyON rocks!!!"
Please bring your digital devices with you for the event. We will have open Wi-Fi, support available to help guide you and your student while signing on to the system, using it to access free digital books online, and other tips, suggestions and resources for use over the summer. We're excited to announce that we, as well as myON, are sponsoring a contest this summer for top readers in each grade level. We're excited to partner together with Meridian families and myON to explore engaging ways to help students find their remarkable joy for reading.
