\We hope your summer is off to a wonderful start. As you plan your activities, please keep in mind our Carden Summer School, to be held the week of August 12-16, from 9:00 am - 12:00 noon.
Summer School is open to new and returning students who will be entering 1st through 6th grade, and our classes provide an opportunity for fun and learning before children return returning to school in September. Here's a preview of what we have planned:
1st and 2nd Grade: (with Mrs. Giles) Students will delight in playing interactive games to review reading and math skills. Inspiration from the outdoors will be the basis for creative art projects.
3rd and 4th Grade: (with Mrs. Cross) Writing creative poems about summer activities, and painting with watercolors will be part of this summer school experience. Students will review math facts and create their own math facts board game, and learn about science through a fun lemonade making experiment.
5th and 6th Grade: (with Mr. Alm) Students will engage in some exciting art projects as well as creative writing. Playing NBA Math Hoops will allow students to practice math facts and review percents and decimals in a board game that combines NBA player statistics and math. They will learn more about science through experiments that produce both physical and chemical changes.
