In addition to the summer math book, all students entering grades 1 – 8 must complete a summer reading assignment. All students will be expected to read at least three books.
In grades 2-8, one should be nonfiction, one fiction, and one can be the student’s choice. For those students in grades assigned book reports or projects, these items will be collected and graded when the students return to school in August 2012.
We’re excited to try something new this year! Because of the overwhelming response to Accelerated Reader, we are offering another option for summer reading accountability. Students may write a book report or complete a project as they have in the past, OR they may simply pass the AR test.
The school lobby will be open in the summer during the following days, from 10:00 AM until 1:00 PM. (T, W, TH)
June 19, 20, 21 July 17, 18, 19 Aug. 7, 8, 9
26, 27, 28 24, 25, 26 14, 15, 16
Students will also be able to take tests during Meet & Greet on Aug. 27 from 9:30 – 1:30, but please plan to use the earlier dates to avoid a last minute rush.
Parents, please use this link, email@example.com, to send an email letting us know that you are coming. You will receive a confirmation or a request to choose another time if necessary. Be sure to use arbookfind.com at home to check if there is an AR test to accompany your child’s book. The teachers’ book report or project options will be posted along with the summer reading lists.
If you have questions, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org
Enjoy the summer break and keep reading!
Read three books and create projects or take AR tests on them. Choose ONE book from the Social Studies or STEM sections; choose a second book from the whole list (Either Social Studies, STEM, OR Other), and choose a third book of your choice of any appropriately leveled book, not necessarily on the list. Please read overview here.
Incoming kindergarten students, those accepted for the 2012-2013 academic year, must complete the Summer Book K, published by Summerbook Company. This book is to be ordered on-line by parents/guardians. Following are the directions to place the order.
Place order for Summer Book K and materials only. It is not necessary to order any of the other supplemental materials.
Students in grades K - 4 must complete the summer skills workbook for their current grade. The purpose of this book is to practice and reinforce skills already acquired during the 2011-2012 school year. For the best results, it is recommended that the chapters in the book be worked on little by little over the course of the break. Books can be ordered online at http://www.summerskills.com/summerskillsbooks/math_books or by calling 1.800.411.8186 Monday - Friday from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.
All students currently enrolled in grades 5 - 7 will be required to complete a basic skills worksheet packet related to the Saxon textbook they used for the 2011-2012 school year (i.e. Saxon 5, Course 1, Course 2 or Course 3). These packets will be posted on the ICS website beginning June 6th and should be printed out at home. (If printing at home is not an option, please notify your student's teacher and a copy will be provided to them.) It is important that students work on the packet a little at a time over the course of the break and not all at once. Packets will be graded for both completion and accuracy. All work must be shown in order to receive full credit. Please use pencil and write neatly. Completed packets will be due the first full day back and all students will take an assessment at the end of the first week of school to demonstrate their mastery of the material practiced over the break.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your student's current math teacher or Mrs. Cucuzzella (Math Coordinator) at email@example.com. Thank you!
