A long-time TPS tradition is to keep academic and creative juices running during summer break!
As usual, we ask that all children read or be read to for at least 20 minutes each day. In addition, children entering 2nd through 8th grades also have specific summer assignments, some tailored for an individual child and some for the entire grade.
Summer assignments are designed for maintenance of skills (preventing “summer slide”), remediation, or preview of content to be explored in the upcoming year. For 8th graders, the summer book report is used in the fall as the basis of the required writing sample for high school admissions.
Children currently in grades 2nd through 7th received their summer assignments on Move-Up Day on June 5. Some students received individualized reading or math assignments; these need to be kept in a safe place as they cannot be replaced. If the individualized assignments are lost, students can pick books and do math activities that are posted by grade.

Have a great summer filled with wonderful literature and fun activities.
