Summer Solutions

Just a few weeks left to order! Just as a reminder, Summer Solutions is what I have used with my children and a few of the other Catholic Schools use them as well for their students. Books are available to help enrich and review preschool through eighth grade levels. I have used the Study Skills for high school students and it has served as a good tool.

This is NOT mandatory, a school fundraiser, nor does the school make money on purchases. It is, however, a great program to keep students sharp throughout the summer. The idea is to order the grade level just completed to help with review and practice as the program is built to complete a lesson a day. Personally, we take the books on trips and knock out lessons first thing in the mornings before camps and summer commitments.

I have spoken with the Summer Solutions representative and for our convenience all books and orders may be made online and will be shipped to the school to help alleviate shipping costs. All orders are packaged by family and will be distributed to students in May.

Please note, there are options for State Standards or Common Core standards. Saint Maria Goretti follows State Standards. I have ordered both in the past just because...well...because that's what educators do. :) I will place a few samples in the office. Please feel free to contact Leah Rios if there are any questions of concerns.
