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.
Summer Math books will not be a required assignment for students to complete heading into the 20-21 school year. However, if interested the summer skills Math workbook that has been used in prior years can be purchased online. The workbook is titled, Summer Solutions - Common Core Mathematics - grade XX and ordering information can be found here.
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.
