All families should think about how they can continue their child’s learning through the summer! Let’s work together to get our students ready to start running when school begins in September.
Sumner School Summer Learning Packets:
Sumner staff have put together some fun reading, writing, and math activities to help our students prepare for the next school year. Try to read and/or work on your packets a little bit each day over the summer to prevent summer learning loss and be ready to soar in the new school year!
Summer Reading Together engages students to share the experience of reading and talking about books they read over the summer when school begins. This initiative aims to prevent summer reading loss, encourage pleasure reading, and foster a culture of readers. Our focus is to motivate, engage, and cultivate a culture of readers.
