Dear St. Mark Families,

I hope you're enjoying your summer with family and friends. This is gentle reminder for our returning Grade 1 through 8 students to keep their skills sharp during the summer months using Edmentum and Reading Eggs on-line learning platforms.

  • Returning students entering Grades 2 through 8 are strongly encouraged to engage in 30 minutes of work on each Edmentum Personalized Exact Path (Mathematics, Reading, Language) per week.

  • Returning students entering Grade 1 are strongly encouraged to engage in 30 minutes of work per week on Reading Eggs.

New students entering Grades K and 1 will be introduced to Reading Eggs in September, while Edmentum will be introduced to new students entering Grades 2 through 8.

Both new and returning students are encouraged to keep track of summer reading for the CT Governor's Reading Challenge Tales and Tails. Student Summer Reading Journal can be found here. Visit the Connecticut Reads website by clicking here for more information and click here to learn how to find "just right" books for your child and recommended book lists.

For those that participate in the Governor's Reading Challenge, students will enjoy a yummy treat toward the end of September from the ice cream truck! Our Little Lions preschool students will receive a treat as welcome to our community!

Keep up the good work and continue reading!!!!!

Yours in Christ,
Melissa Warner
