Dear Parents,

Today, every boy in 1st – 5th grade received a red folder containing his required summer reading and math assignments.

The folders contain all the information your son will need in order to complete his required summer work. Just as last year, all required math assignments are contained within the red folder. If you would like for your son to have additional math practice, he may login to Dreambox (rising 2nd–4th), IXL (rising 2nd–6th), or Mangahigh (rising 6th) using his username and password found on the front pocket of the folder. For your convenience, we have included links to each program via the Quicklinks menu at the top of the PDS website.

The library will be open this summer for checking out books and taking AR tests. The library schedule can be found on the inside pocket of the red folder.

On the first day of school in August, your son will need to return his completed assignments in the red folder.

Enjoy summer!

Laura Glenn
Head of Elementary
