Book It! Reading Incentive Program

Book-IT logo





Our daily homework includes reading at home each night. All Suva students are now enrolled in the Suva BOOK IT Reading Club! The BOOK IT! Program is all about turning kids who read because they have to into kids read because they want to.

During the months November-March, students who meet their monthly reading goals, will receive  a Reading Award Certificate for a free Personal Pan Pizza from Pizza Hut. On the first visit, they will also receive an official BOOK IT Passport to Reading and sticker to track their reading throughout the program months. On subsequent visits, they will get another free Personal Pan Pizza and sticker and add to their passport. Our PTA will also be providing prizes. 

Parents, you play an important role in this program. Our Teachers will be monitoring students' completion of their reading goal with a reading log. Please be sure your child reads each night and sign their log. By working together we can help your child become lifelong readers.

Dear Parents: As we begin the 2019-20 school year, please take a few minutes to review the following information provided by regarding the impact of your child’s attendance at school.  By working together as a team, we can ensure your child is successful at school. Thank you!   Mr. Frausto

Help Your Child Succeed in School: Build the Habit of Good Attendance Early School success goes hand in hand with good attendance!


•  Starting in kindergarten, too many absences can cause children to fall behind in school.

•  Missing 10 percent (or about 18 days) can make it harder to learn to read.

•  Students can still fall behind if they miss just a day or two days every few weeks.

•  Being late to school may lead to poor attendance and results in a loss of instructional time.

•  Absences can affect the whole classroom if the teacher has to slow down learning to help children catch up.

Attending school regularly helps children feel better about school—and themselves. Start building this habit in preschool so they learn right away that going to school on time, every day is important. Good attendance will help children do well in high school, college, and at work.


•  Set a regular bed time and morning routine.

•  Lay out clothes and pack backpacks the night before.

•  Don’t let your child stay home unless he/she is truly sick.

•  If your child seems anxious about going to school, talk to teachers or the school psychologist for advice on how to make him/her feel comfortable and excited about learning.

•  Develop back-up plans for getting to school if something comes up. Call on a family member, a neighbor, or another parent if you need help getting your children to school.

•  Avoid medical appointments and extended trips when school is in session.

Suva Elementary is partnered with the LA County District Attorney’s “Abolish Chronic Truancy Program” (ACT Program) that enforces compulsory education laws focusing on parents’ responsibility and accountability to get children to school.

When Do Absences Become a Problem?

CHRONIC ABSENCE 10 or more days in a semester (ACT Program)

WARNING SIGNS 10 to 17 days in 1 school year

Attends school regularly on time


Suva Elementary School Earns California Gold Ribbon Award

Suva Elementary School is being honored as a 2016 California Gold Ribbon School for boosting student reading comprehension through after-school learning opportunities and new technological tools. The school offers eight-week programs for students who need extra help in honing skills that include use of an online reading program and ways to annotate material.

The Gold Ribbon is California’s highest academic honor.

Suva has the second-largest elementary school population in Montebello Unified. Nearly all students come from socioeconomically disadvantaged homes; more than 50 percent are English learners. The reading program has helped narrow achievement gaps as reading comprehension surges on state tests.

The school’s dedication to preparing students for their future academic success is embodied in its nickname – Suva University.
