Studies show that all students benefit from regular skill practice during the summer break. Summer reading and math work have been a mainstay of our Harbor Day program and are required of all students entering grades 1-8. Students are expected to complete summer math and summer reading assignments and return them to their classroom on the first day of school. We ask the parents/guardians to sign the workbooks and packets to signify approval of book choices and quality of work. Summer reading and math assignments may be picked up from the front office June 21-24 between 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m.
Reading assignments vary by grade level and require students to read a book provided by the school as well as additional books of their choice.
The math workbook provides a review of the skills taught throughout the year and is divided up into lessons to work on a lesson or two a day. Students should show their work in the math workbook and may refer to the answer sheet at the end of the workbook if needed to check if their answer is correct. Please have your child circle any questions that they have difficulty with, so their teacher can review these concepts during the first weeks of school.
