Dear Lower School Parents:

While nothing replaces the educational or personal rewards of reading over the summer months, I know the world of technology can be more than a little enticing, particularly during the long non-structured days of summer vacation.

Below, you will find suggested apps and websites for math. We strongly encourage your son to take advantage of them. A suggested goal might be 20 minutes a day. Your son should focus on the grade level he just completed, as well as his upcoming grade. First and foremost, we hope you all have a fun, safe, and relaxing summer! Please let me know if I can provide any clarification on these guidelines.

With warm regards,

Laurie Gruhn

Head of Lower School
