On average, all students, regardless of socio-economic status, lose approximately 2.6 months of grade level equivalency in mathematical computation over the summer months each year.*
The Summer Math Challenge is a FREE math skills maintenance program based on grade-level standards that help prepare students for college and careers. The program is targeted to students who have just completed grade 2 through 5 and is designed to help kids retain math skills learned during the previous school year. From June 22nd through July 31st parents will receive daily emails with fun activities and links to educational resources. When the program ends parents can print an award certificate to celebrate their child's summer math accomplishment!
