Math Challenge

During the school year students have math concepts reinforced on a daily basis and each new concept builds on the last. During the summer students often slip into a summer slide where for several months they go without reinforcing the concepts they have already learned. Summer math is a way for students to practice the math concepts from the previous school year and start the next year with a head start. The summer math program is available for students entering into grades 1-5. Students are given the opportunity to practice their math and to earn prizes for their work. Our Volunteens will be available on prize pick up days to check work and answer student’s questions. There are four worksheets available for each grade level. New sheets will be released June 4th, June 18th, July 2nd, & July 16th. Students can pick up or print sheets anytime and return them for prizes on the following dates. Mon., June 18 and Wed., June 20: 11 a.m.–1 p.m. or 5–7 p.m. Mon., July 2 and Tues., July 3: 11 a.m.–1 p.m. or 5–7 p.m. Mon., July 16 and Wed., July 18: 11 a.m.–1 p.m. or 5–7 p.m. Mon., July 30 and Wed., Aug. 1: 11 a.m.–1 p.m. or 5–7 p.m.
