Students in grades Kindergarten through fourth grade received a “Summer Packet” at the end of the school year. Please be sure your child spends time each day reading as well as some time each week working to complete his/her packet of materials. The worksheets are related to the Indiana Academic Standards and will help our students remain focused and keep skills sharp over the summer break. Students are expected to bring these summer packets completed on the first day of school, Thursday, July 27, 2017.
