Summer Reading Work for K-8th Grades

Summer is a great time to take a break and relax.  And what better way to relax than with a book!   Read in the park, on the beach or, better yet, read with a friend!

All students – choose one title from the list below.  Students will have a discussion/activity during the first week back from school about the book. Remember to choose books from the grade that you are going into next year.   And don’t forget to enjoy your summer!

Summer Math Work for Incoming 2nd-8th Grades

Dear Incoming 2nd – 8th grade parents:

We encourage your child to work on the Khan Academy math website during the summer.  This program not only provides skills practice based on standards, but it also includes tutorials to help students learn concepts for which they may need further instruction. This site is located at www.khanacademy.org   There is no login or password required.

This is not mandatory, but research shows that most students lose about two months of math grade level equivalency if they do not engage in learning activities over the summer months.   We hope the students will take advantage of this summer learning opportunity.

We wish you and your family a happy and restful summer.

Sincerely,

Your Math Teachers at St. Raymond School
