Summer Learning SY2021-22
Dear Parents and Guardians,
In an effort to ensure our scholars continue to grow academically over the summer months, we are requiring them to complete Math and reading assignments in all grades. Please see below for the required assignments for your child(ren)’s grade level.
All scholars will be required to complete two units in both Math and Reading on Classworks four days per week. The standards covered through Classworks will ensure that all of the standards of the previous school year are mastered. There is not a time limit on these activities; rather, scholars will be graded upon completion of the units when they return to school. The students should receive a grade of 80% or above on the Classworks assignment. Weekly, teachers will observe the student progress and reassign units that fall below 80%. All scholars have their login information.
New Families: Scholars will receive their Classworks Login at New Student Technology Orientation July 6th @ 10:00 AM or July 7th @ 2:00 p.m. You will receive an email to sign-up for one of these times.
If you have any questions about Classworks please take a look at the video on this page.

Learning Ally is the learning tool that can be used to help scholars access books electronically and receive reading support. All returning scholars have access to Learning Ally and are familiar with how to access it. All new scholars will receive access on or by June 29th.
