Recognizing that our curriculum during the school year is rigorous and that expectations are high for student learning, there is great value in the children having a respite during the months of summer. On the other hand, studies have shown that students lose ground during the long vacation if not provided an opportunity to keep their skills sharp. With these two perspectives in mind, as in prior years, the teachers have crafted a balanced plan specific for our school.
(Note: Parents should select the summer learning assignments that correspond to the grade that their child will be entering in the fall. For example, a student entering second grade would complete the Summer Book Program for rising 2nd graders. A child entering third grade would complete the assignments outlined for rising 3rd graders.)
