However, due to the fact that we were unable to provide the summer reading assignment to our students prior to the last day of school we have decided to utilize the first nine weeks of school to provide additional time to complete and submit the assignments. It is our desire to ensure that each student has the support necessary to be successful and to acquire proficiency in the concepts these lessons teach.
