Each summer, we ask for your help in maintaining our students’ reading and math skills to ease their transition to the new academic challenges of the fall semester.
We have designed a program that offers consistency across grade levels, optional work to meet differentiated needs in literacy and math, and an all-School sensibility that includes themes we will review when we reconvene. The summer learning program includes:
- Accountability charts and guidelines for daily reading practice
- Review of math facts and concepts
- “The Big Read,” which this summer focuses on the books of Jacqueline Woodson
- Spanish practice (rising grades 5-8)
- Optional DreamBox and Lexia extensions (rising grades K-6)
You will find more information about each of these components in the following pages, including resources to help you identify the right books for your child’s reading level and online resources to support learning in math, literacy, language, and more. Similar to previous years, students in the lower division will receive math workbooks and be required to log their daily reading. Students in the middle division will keep a daily reading log, practice Spanish, and sustain their math competency with the help of Khan Academy platform.
Thank you for your partnership in supporting the summer learning component of your child’s education. We look forward to starting the 2022-2023 school year with our students feeling prepared and excited about what new learning awaits. Please contact Kate Bitter, dean of lower division, or Anthony Schipper, dean of middle division, with your questions.
Mrs. Molly K. Bozzo
Head of the Lower and Middle Divisions
