All students entering 1st thru 8th Grade in 2023-2024 are required to practice their reading skills with an assigned novel over the summer break. In addition to the reading, students will be required to complete 20 IXL Practice Skills (includes practice for both MATH & LANGUAGE ARTS). See below for more details on this year's "Summer Review" requirements. Summer Novel Reading: For the reading comprehension practice portion of the summer review , guided reading questions have been provided (below) to help students keep track of understanding as they read. These questions do NOT have to be answered on paper, nor do they have to be submitted! They are to be used to monitor understanding only. Teachers will be reviewing both the novel and the questions with students when classes resume. Students in 2nd Grade thru 8th Grade will be tested on their summer novels at the end of their first full week of school.
IXL Math and Language Arts Assignments: Students have beenrecommended20 IXL Practice Skills for Math and 20 IXL Practice Skills for Language Arts as part of their Summer Review. Students will be required to complete a minimum of 10 Skills for Math and 10 Skills for Language Arts. Completion of these skills is essential for students to begin the school year with a strong academic base and build on skills learned from the previous year. Students will receive a completion grade for completing their IXL Practice Skills by the back to school due date with a satisfactory grade of 80% or above.
We highly recommend the completion of ALL listed IXL Practice Skills. This exercise offers students both an opportunity to reinforce learned skills and practice individual skills they may need further development in.
