We encourage students to take a break and relax over the summer, but we don't want them to completely forget about learning. It is especially important for our students to keep up with practicing their math facts and keep reading!

NEW STUDENTS - Prep for Success Kits (provided)
Understanding that our new students have experienced a variety of different learning environments over the course of the past couple of years, (virtual, hybrid, etc.) our teachers have created helpful workbook "prep kits" that have been distributed to our new families at contract time. Our hope is that parents can review the identified academic milestones from their child's current grade level to help give their students a great start to their new school year this Fall! (For example, a Rising 2nd grader will be reviewing key milestones from their 1st grade school year.) Provided below are the overviews from our teachers provided to our new students. If you have any questions, please contact our Admissions office at firstname.lastname@example.org.

MIDDLE SCHOOL Math (new & current students, grades 7 & 8)
Mrs. Barlow, our Middle School Math Teacher, has provided helpful resources below as a review for our current and new rising 7th and 8th grade students. New Middle School Students will be assessed during the first week of school for either a Pre-Algebra or Algebra I Math Track, so this is an important way for students to prepare. Should you have any questions, please reach out to Mrs. Barlow at email@example.com.
MIDDLE SCHOOL Latin (new students, grades 6-8)
Mr. Cronheim, our Latin Teacher, encourages our new, incoming middle school students in grades 6, 7 & 8 to spend 10-15 minutes each weekday learning basic Latin vocabulary and terms that can be found in the following document. This is a great way to be able to prepare for beginning Latin this Fall. Should you have any questions, please reach out to Mr. Cronheim at firstname.lastname@example.org.
MIDDLE SCHOOL GRAMMAR (new students, grades 6-8, see your prep kit overview above)
We would like our new incoming middle school students to review key grammar terms in preparation for their new school year. For our new Rising 6th grade students, you have received a workbook in your prep kit which includes grammar practice. For our new Rising 7th & 8th grade students, you have received a Middle School Grammar book with lesson assignments provided on your prep kit overview (see above). If you have any questions, please email Mrs. Cisik at email@example.com.
Our school will be offering school supply bundles through the PTO for the upcoming school year. Information will be sent mid-July. For those who prefer to purchase the supplies on your own, here is the upcoming 2023-2024 SUPPLIES LIST for all grades (please be sure to scroll to your grade list).
