Prevent the Summer Slide!


The third grade is officially finished with the CTP4 testing! They are all relieved and I look forward to seeing their scores in August. We have also completed our spelling program for the school year! They have taken the final spelling assessment and will NOT have a spelling list next week.  Additionally, we are lucky enough to offer the opportunity to sign up for a free, personalized, online summer math program for your child through TenMarks!

Dear Parent,

Research shows that most children lose 2-3 months of math learning over the summer.

We’re delighted to inform you about a free program offered by TenMarks, an Amazon

Company that will provide your child with access to a powerful, personalized summer math

program designed to help them reverse summer learning loss.

The program is called TenMarks Summer Math Program and here is how it works.

3. At the start of the program, your child will receive a short diagnostic assessment

based on the grade s/he is completing.

4. The assessment will be automatically graded and TenMarks will create a

personalized program designed to prepare your child for the upcoming year.

5. You can create custom rewards to keep your child motivated – pizza, ice cream, or

a trip to the zoo! It’s all up to you!

An hour a week is all it takes for your child to strengthen his/her math skills, and prepare for

the year ahead. The TenMarks Summer Math Program will guide your child through their

personalized program, one topic at a time, helping them refresh what they know, and learn what they don’t. Each assignment contains embedded instruction (hints, video lessons, and interventions) to ensure success.

The 3-month program starts at the end of May. To get started, pre-register at

Let’s say goodbye to summer learning loss!
