Did you know that the average American child loses between 1 and 3 months of learning in reading and math each summer? You can continue to love and enjoy your summer while keeping your children learning! Engaging in at least one math game or activity each day can help prevent summer learning loss.
Students entering grades 1-5 will have summer math calendars to work on. These calendars will be posted on the district website as well as your school page. The activities in our summer math calendars will review concepts and skills that have been completed during the 2018-2019 school year. We ask that your child choose at least 18 of the 24 activities listed for each month to complete. Circle each box as you complete it. A blank version of the calendar has been provided for children to show their thinking or reasoning for the activities they complete. The EM4 games listed under play are all games that your child has engaged in at school and they are easy to play at home. Directions have been provided for additional games. Spending a few minutes each day thinking and talking about math will help reinforce skills learned as well as continue to build the foundation for mathematical success in the coming school year. We hope that you have fun with the activities and make sure to have your children share their thinking and reasoning with people in your family.

Continuing Volunteer Opportunities
Community Dinner Project: Building community through food and conversation
Thank you to those who have already signed up to either open their homes or participate in a Community Dinner! This is an amazing opportunity and one that I encourage you to consider. The Community Dinner Project hopes to invite Tucker & Glover parents/guardians to have a conversation, share meaningful stories, good food, and a sense of community. The Community Dinner Project provides an opportunity to meet others from the Tucker and Glover school communities, connect to learn more about each other, and share ideas for how to strengthen our community for our kids to thrive. This project is sponsored by our joint Diversity Committees and is adapted from a nation-wide model, The People’s Supper. We hope to use this opportunity to grow and build our community while celebrating our diversity.
As a kick-off event, we hope to have as many volunteers as possible to host a Community Dinner in their home. Dinners will be held on 4/25/19 and 4/27/19. Each dinner will have families from both schools. To sign up to be a host and/or to sign up to be a guest at one of the dinners, please log on to https://goo.gl/forms/
