Seamless Summer Learning
Summer Math includes access to individual student IXL account. IXL is a Power App in the DLE Digital Toolbox that provides individualized mathematical computation skills adapted to the needs of each student.
GPS recommends a minimum of 30 minutes of IXL use per week, which supports mastery of 1-2 mathematical computation skills per week.
● Operations and Algebraic Thinking
● Numbers in Base Ten
● Measurement and Data
The summer reading program emphasizes and promotes a habit of reading with suggestions for books both in print and eBooks. We recommend that your children read a minimum of 30 minutes/day.
The Middle School Summer Reading Website provides lists of recommended authors, genres and general reading levels, access to the Greenwich Public Schools Digital Library through Overdrive and additional information about the partnership with Greenwich Public Library can be found on the Summer Reading 2016 webpage.
Students are encouraged to read books that are listed by the grade the student is entering in the fall of the upcoming school year. Most importantly, be sure your child is choosing great reads from their favorite genre, author, or interest. Although there is no written assignment, students should be ready to discuss the books they read in the summer when they return to school.
