Each year, students have an opportunity to attend summer sessions at Sts. Simon & Jude School. If there is enough interest, classes are offered in math and reading/language arts for students entering grades one through eight. The summer school sessions are held for four weeks, Monday through Thursday.
There are two classes each day. The first class begins at 8:00 a.m. and ends at 9:45 a.m. The second class begins at 10:00 a.m. and ends at 11:45 a.m. Students may attend one or both classes. There is a separate fee for each class that includes books, the Family Library Pass, supplies and insurance. Registration forms are available in the school office, or on the summer school link on the Sts. Simon & Jude School website. Please register early as class size is limited.
Any students entering 5th through 8th grades who master at least 20 Accelerated Math objectives during the summer session will have their math goals reduced by seven objectives per trimester for the 2017-2018 school year. Students mastering 30+ objectives will have their goals reduced by 10 objectives each trimester. Students entering 2nd through 4th grades mastering Accelerated Math objectives during summer school will have the opportunity to “test out” of these objectives in the fall, and have them applied to their math record for the first trimester of the school year. Points earned on Accelerated Reading quizzes taken during the summer session will be credited toward the student reading goals in each trimester during the 2017-2018 school year.
If your children are not attending summer school, but you want them to engage in some summer reading, you may purchase a Family Library Pass for $40. The library will be open Monday through Thursday from 7:45 a.m. until 12:00 p.m. during the four weeks that summer school is in session. This pass entitles everyone in the family to check out books before school closes in June. During the four-week summer session, students may take STAR reading quizzes and check out additional books. At the end of summer school, students can also check out books for the remainder of the summer and take quizzes as soon as school begins in the fall.
We look forward to another successful summer of learning!
