Summer Learning


Dear Parent/Guardian,       

According to Johns Hopkins University, the effects of summer learning loss can result in nearly a three-month loss in grade-level equivalency in math and a two-month loss in grade-level equivalency in reading.   As a result of the school shut down, estimates suggest students will return in the fall 2020 with roughly 70% of the learning gains in reading relative to a typical school year.  However in mathematics, students are likely to show much smaller learning gains and in some grades, nearly a full year behind what we would observe in normal conditions. In order to close the summer learning loss gap in reading and math, middle school students will be  expected to complete Summer Learning before they return in the fall.  Teachers will grade the completed summer work when school opens in August.  Below are the expectations for math and literacy.  Thank you so much for supporting your child’s development through summer learning.

Over the summer CURRENT 6th and 7th graders will have two (2) math and two (2) ELA IXLs to complete each week.

We will post the links for the week’s IXLs every Monday STARTING Monday, June 22nd and ENDING Monday, August 17th.  The percent you need to complete them to will be posted with each IXL.

If you are on vacation and can’t do them that week, no problem!  They need to be completed by the first day of school Monday, August 31st (that is the first day as of right now).

ALSO, current 6th and 7th graders need to read 3 books at or above their reading level.  Please be sure to record the title and author for each book.  There will be an assignment when we return for the books.
Have a great summer!

Thank you STEM Family!


We would like to thank our great STEM family for making locker/yearbook pick-up successful!
