• Summer  
     
     
     *Important notice - The deadline for summer math has been extended, please read the letter here:  English  Spanish
     
     
    Our school district is committed to preventing the "summer slide" that occurs in our students' mathematics skills.  With this in mind, we have created summer math assignments for students entering grades 1 - HS Algebra II.  We believe these assignments will help to refresh the skills learned over the previous school year and prepare for new instruction in September.  
     

    Students entering grades 1 through 3 will receive folders with copies of their math and language arts assignments in school before the school year is over, however they are also being provided here as downloads in case they are misplaced or damaged over the summer. 
     
     
     
     
     
    Students entering grades 4 through HS Algebra II will be completing their summer assingments online this year, using IXL.com.  Please read the documents below for all of the details on these assignments, how they will be scored, and for copies of the log that students must turn in the first day of school. 
     
    Please note that a portion of the summer mathematics assignment is based on meeting deadlines. 
     
    This plan was designed to encourage consistent practice and better prevent the "summer slide"  than our prior assignments would have ever been able to do.  The overall time commitment for these assignments is on par with (if not less than) the packets we have used in the past. We are aware the possibility exists that an unforeseeable, unexpected, and/or unavoidable situation may occur which makes it impossible to meet all of the deadlines.  For these extreme cases, please reach out to Mr. Slater (sslater@kpsdschools.org).

    *Determinations for 8th grade Algebra I will be made prior to the start of the first IXL window on July 1st, so that students will know which level to work on over the summer.
     
    *Students from Memorial School who have registered at KHS for 9th grade in the fall may have issues with their IXL accounts after our IXL rollover occured in late June.  If the login information provided does not work, please change the "599" in your username to "1" or "2" and try again.  If those do not work, please contact Mr. Slater (sslater@kpsdschools.org) as soon as possible and I will send you your updated login info.
     
     

     
     
     

    Also, it is crucial for students entering 4th and 5th grade to continue practicing their multiplication facts over the summer.  Mastery of these skills is necessary for a strong mathematical foundation.  Parents can support their child in doing so by creating flash cards, using XtraMath.org, and/or any other apps that help in practicing these skills.
     
    Enjoy the summer, and keep practicing!
