Keep Mathing this summer!

Hi all!
Want to keep up those math skills? Here are some ideas:
Khan Academy-- set a goal of 5 Khan assignments each week and work on skills like fractions, measurement, area and volume, and probability. I also recommend following Khan's 7th or 8th grade mission to get a jump on skills for the coming school year.
Kahoot-- play some kahoots-- and work on skills like fractions, measurement, area and volume, and probability.

Class of 2019 is Going to DC!

Fundraising starts this summer! We're having two car washes - July 14th and August 11th. Come join us!

We need your support to make this happen!

Mandatory Parent Meeting in September - Details to come!

Please contact Jennifer Williams at 773-412-7509 or to find out more, sign up for the car wash, or attend our planning meetings!
