Summer Work:
2015 Summer Academic Requirements- All young people experience learning losses when they do not engage in educational activities during the summer. Research spanning 100 years shows that students typically score lower on standardized tests at the end of summer vacation than they do on the same tests at the beginning of the summer (White, 1906; Heyns, 1978; Entwisle & Alexander 1992; Cooper, 1996; Downey et al, 2004). 

Please join Team Mountz in combating this regression and click on the link for your child's rising class summer academic requirements in reading and mathematics.
