Summer Math Opportunities
If you would like to reinforce and strengthen your child's math skills this summer, please follow this link to a free offer from Think Through Math.
Research shows that most children lose 2-3 months of math learning over the summer. We're delighted to inform you about a free program offered by TenMarks, an Amazon Company that will provide your child with access to a powerful, personalized summer math program designed to help them reverse summer learning loss.
The program is called TenMarks Summer Math Program and here is how it works:
1. You can visit http://summer.tenmarks.com to pre-register for the program.
2. Before summer break, you'll receive an email with instructions on how to get
3. At the start of the program, your child will receive a short diagnostic assessment
based on the grade s/he is completing.
4. The assessment will be automatically graded and TenMarks will create a
personalized program designed to prepare your child for the upcoming year.
5. You can create custom rewards to keep your child motivated - pizza, ice cream, or
a trip to the zoo! It's all up to you!
An hour a week is all it takes for your child to strengthen his/her math skills, and prepare for
the year ahead. The TenMarks Summer Math Program will guide your child through their
personalized program, one topic at a time, helping them refresh what they know, and learn
what they don't. Each assignment contains embedded instruction (hints, video lessons, and
interventions) to ensure success.
The 3-month program starts at the end of May. To get started, pre-register at
