Summer Skills Enrichment Program

 

Summer is a time for fun and family. It’s time for a change of pace and a change of scenery. It’s also a time for children to forget what they learned the previous school year. This loss of learning is sometimes called the “summer slide”. If you’d like to read more about it, check out the links at the bottom of this page.

To ensure that your child maintains his or her academic success for the next school year, we are instituting a Summer Reading and Skills Reinforcement Program for students (PK-10th grade). We encourage you to make this fun for your child, but to also make it intentional. Come up with a plan so there is no need to panic as summer comes to an end. You are welcome to read with your child, discuss the book as they go along, and of course, read more than the minimum!

Please use the links to the right (or at the bottom on a mobile device) to access the Summer Reading Packet for each grade level, referencing the grade your child will be in for the coming school year to choose the correct packet.

Please note that the assignments will be part of the first reading grade of the new school year, so don't neglect to make this part of your summer.

Children in grades K to 2 are also asked to complete a "Summer Bridge" workbook. Links for each level are listed to the right (or at the bottom on a mobile device).

Have fun and read!
