Math and Reading Summer Camp

HighMark will be offering Math and Reading Summer Camps this summer.  Please read below for details and to register.

Summer Math Camp:

The 2017 summer math camp will be for students who seek/need extra help with mathematical concepts.  During the class we will discuss and reteach major areas from each grade that are pivotal in being successful for the following year.  This class is created to help review concepts and will be focused on filling in any holes that your student may struggle with.  Being that math is a building block structure, it’s important to fully understand each year before moving on to the next.  This class can help narrow the gap and make your student better prepared for next year.

During the class we will be working with read 180 which is leading blended learning intervention program for building reading comprehension, academic vocabulary & writing skills for struggling students.
