Winter Break: Reading & Math

It is important that over the 2+ weeks of winter break, students are still working to challenge themselves in math and reading. We don't want their progress to decline! We are encouraging students to continue reading over the break as well as practice their math by using apps such as Sumdog. The Humanities department in the district has created a website specifically to utilize in order to help your child continue to grow in reading over the the year, not just during this break. You can access their website here:
