Research shows that just a little, but consistent, summer work maintains and advances content knowledge. Summer practice helps make more permanent the learning that has occurred over the past nine months. The results of our MAP testing this spring showed significant progress for many of our students over the year but there are still too many who did not demonstrate the desired growth.
Our Summer Climb is an important step towards having all of our students ready for the coming school year. Teachers have given considerable thought to the best ways to keep kids’ minds active over the summer with reading recommendations and required writing and math work.
The assigned work isn’t a lot but is just enough so We All Rise As One.
