Summer Learning #mwsummerlearning

Summer Learning

In an effort to offer students a new and exciting experience over the summer we have rebranded and expanded our Summer Reading Program. Students will now participate in Summer Learning. We asked our faculty what does it take for our pterodactyls to SOAR and each department came up with wonderful ways to enjoy and learn this summer!

SOARS stands for:

Here's how it works:

  • Every student has to earn points in our Summer Learning Challenge.
  • Every student has the opportunity to select a series of tasks from the SOARS classroom (link below).
  • Each task ranges from 100 points to 500 points.
  • We want every Pterodactyl to SOAR and in order to do so every student must earn 500 points!
  • Students planning to take an honors or AP course , you must earn an additional 500 points for a total of 1000 points.
  • Students who would like to be entered into our $100 Summer Learning Challenge must obtain 1500 points.

Be on the lookout for activities that will give students the opportunity to be entered into a weekly drawing to win a $25 Amazon gift card. These activities require students to post to social media using the hashtag: #mwsummerlearning
