Summer Programs

 

Math
In order to help students maintain their skills in Math, all students returning to Guardian Angels in the fall are expected to complete work over the summer. Each student currently in grades K-7 is required to complete a Summer Solutions Math book over the summer break. Books can be purchased through the Summer Solutions website. Please order the standards-based mathematics book for the grade level your child just completed. These books are also available in many bookstores as well as amazon.com. 
 
Reading
In order to help students maintain their skills in Reading during the summer months, all students going into grades 1 – 8 are asked to read one specific book, indicated by the child’s teacher. Students are also asked to keep a reading log of all the books they read during the summer. Each grade level Language Arts teacher gives detailed instructions to the students in a letter sent home with the report cards on the last day of school. That information can also be found below.
