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. Students going into grades 1-8 complete an age-appropriate review workbook which is due on the first day of school in August.
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 your 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.
