Summer Blast Grades 3-8
Based on research-based best practices, Orenda will be providing accelerated instruction for students in grades 3-8 during June. This model strives to bridge gaps and prevent a summer slide before the next school so students start the school year prepared for the next grade level rather than providing remediation during the following school year. Summer Blast will be by invitation only based on preliminary raw STAAR scores so we can target the students who are in most need of acceleration. We will be sending invitations and registration information to parents the week of May 22nd.
