IXL is a comprehensive learning program offering unlimited math practice problems in thousands of skills&mdash;all of which are aligned to the Common Core. One of the best things about IXL is that your child can access it from home, so you have a chance to see your child's progress!</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">All middle school students are required to work on IXL over the summer and will receive a grade in the fall for completion of this requirement.&nbsp; <strong>Students need to work within the grade level that they just completed for a period of 45 minutes every 2 weeks.</strong>&nbsp; Students will be completing review problems from the material that they learned this year.&nbsp; I will be checking their progress over the summer.&nbsp; The goal is to ensure that students retain the information that they learned over the academic year.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">If students have completed their summer math work requirement, they will be invited to participate in an icecream party after lunch during the first week fo school!</p> <p class="Paragraph SCXW62709133" style="text-align: justify;"><strong>Summer To Do List (To Make Freshman Year Less Stressful)</strong></p> <p class="Paragraph SCXW62709133" style="text-align: justify;">Your child will be going to a new school in the Fall.&nbsp; It will be difficult for them in a variety of ways. They will not be familiar with their buildings, teachers, processes, schedules, classes, friends, etc.&nbsp; Please spend the summer familiarizing yourself with their new school.&nbsp; This may include requirements on how an absence for an orthodontic appointment is handled, the process for pulling them out of school early, or bringing them to school late.&nbsp; The more that you know, the easier it will be for you and your child to feel at ease about the transition.&nbsp; Below are some things for you to do during the summer that will help make your freshman year less stressful.</p> <ol> <li style="text-align: justify;"><strong>Summer Reading List:</strong>&nbsp; Check the website for your school and find out what their reading requirements are for the summer.&nbsp; They will have to read something and then, either write about it, or participate in a discussion in the Fall regarding what they have read.&nbsp; Don&rsquo;t let your child wait until the last minute.</li> </ol><ol style="text-align: justify;" start="2"> <li><strong>Sports Physicals:</strong> Schedule your child&rsquo;s sports physical during the summer. The school will not allow students to participate in sports unless they have these documents on file.&nbsp; Go to the website of your school and find the necessary forms that you will fill out and bring to your doctor&rsquo;s appointment.&nbsp; This is especially important for Fall sports participation, as some of the practices begin in August before school starts.</li> </ol><ol start="3"> <li style="text-align: justify;"><strong>Community Service:</strong>&nbsp; Check the requirements of your school and see if they require community service.&nbsp; If they do, you can do it over the summer, get it done and not have to worry about it the rest of the year.&nbsp; It is usually about 20 hours per year, and a reflection essay may be required.&nbsp; They may have a reporting website for your student on which to log their hours.</li> </ol> <p class="Paragraph SCXW62709133" style="text-align: justify;"><strong>Dates to Remember:</strong></p> <ul> <li>9/04/18 - First Day of School</li> </ul> <p>Paula Van Hollebeke</p> <p><a href="mailto:pvanhollebeke@stpx.org">pvanhollebeke@stpx.org</a></p> <p>School: (425) 778-9861</p> <div id="mcePasteBin" style="position: absolute; top: 0px; left: 0; background: red; width: 1px; height: 1px; overflow: hidden;" contenteditable="false"> <div contenteditable="true">X</div> </div> <div id="mcePasteBin" style="position: absolute; top: 0px; left: 0; background: red; width: 1px; height: 1px; overflow: hidden;" contenteditable="false"> <div contenteditable="true">X</div> </div>
