Research supports the importance of summer homework to ensure your child is able to maintain his/her mathematics and reading level. For that reason Merrill has a summer homework expectation for all incoming and returning students. Students who were in attendance the final week of school received copies of the packets. Both the math and reading packet are due on Monday, August 27th. Awesome incentives will be given to those students who turn theirs in on the first day of instruction (August 21st for 6’s as this will be their first day of math and literacy class; August 22nd for 7’s and 8’s). We ask that your child does their very best in completing each packet in full. Please know that teachers will be very willing to answer questions during the first week of school.
Please also remember that Library Services provides OverDrive throughout the summer so your child can check out digital books.
