Summer Computer Programs

Reading Plus (Reading)

Reflex Math (Math)

MyOn (Reading)

Reading Plus, MyOn and Reflex Math are now available from home. It is important to encourage students to complete one session of each program daily. This will support reading and math skills through online practice. The more students read, the more they will become familiar with unfamiliar words and math strategies.


Summer Reading Program

Your child has worked hard throughout the school year to develop their reading skills. In order to ensure that your child continues reading during the summer, he/she has the opportunity to engage in our summer reading program. Your child will read two books and choose one assignment to complete. There are two books for each grade level and a variety of assignments from which your child can choose.

We encourage you to take this time to read with your child and help them experience the joys of reading for pleasure.
