Please make sure to have your student complete any and all missing work and earn their credits by THIS Friday (June 26th) at 11:59 EST. Thank you to all of our amazing summer school teachers!

We are also super proud of all of our students earning extra credit taking summer courses through Keystone- keep up that hard work and complete those courses. You are all making Insight super proud!

The Summer Reading Program has started!

With public libraries still closed in many locations, we felt it was important for us to provide summer reading opportunities to our students. Thankfully, GetEpic.com announced this week that they will be extending the free access through summer!


You should have already received an email invite for your student to join my roster! I'll be picking different books to highlight each week, but you may choose whatever books you like. Your reading goal is 20 minutes per day. The system will track your daily reading time for us.


Note- Epic books is for grades k-8.

If you did not receive the email invite or you would like me to resend it just reach out to me via email @ cingram@hoosieracademy.org


Happy Reading!
