Summer Mathematics

Summer Mathematics
Throughout this past school year, our students have deepened their understanding of many mathematical topics and have learned numerous new skills and concepts.  In order for these hard-earned skills to be at their fingertips when they return in September, it is important that they have opportunities to refresh and practice math through these coming weeks. Your child’s math teachers are asking that they spend approximately 1 hour per week (some activities may take less) on keeping these skills fresh in their mind.  

Listed on the schools web under the "For Students" tab, you will find a "Summer Assignments" link to the required activities for the course your child is entering.  The work will be done on the web site www.ixl.com.  All students have an account and have used this site numerous times throughout this past school year.  

This will be the students’ first grade of the new school year in his or her math class.  Students will be graded on their effort / time spent as well as their grade on the assignment.  This is not an assignment that can be completed in the last week of August.  We recommend that students manage their time wisely and look to complete at least two assignments each week.  It is important that your child starts the year off on the right foot.  In the past, students who do not complete their required summer work, struggle to keep up with the course and have trouble pulling their grade up to a respectable mark.  

If you have any questions and or concerns, please feel free to contact the main office of the High School and someone will be in contact with you if needed. The Math Department and the Administrators at Gloucester City Jr./Sr. High school thank-you for your cooperation in helping us assure that your child is receiving the best education possible.
