Dear Parents/Guardians of AE Perry Elementary

We would like to inform you of School District 73’s Summer Math 2016.

What is it?
This summer program is intended to either improve students’ math skills and confidence, or build on existing confidence and extend mathematical thinking for students desiring enrichment.

With sufficient enrolment, we hope to offer both support and enrichment sections split into grades 4/5/6 and 7/8/9. This non-credit program will support learners with paper, game and computer based opportunities to encourage active participation, while building or expanding competency in number sense, patterns and numeracy relationships.

Who is it for?
The “support program” is intended for students who lack comfort when working in Math and would benefit from building their skills and confidence.

The “enrichment program” is for students who enjoy the subject and are looking for new and fun extensions to topics found in the classroom. For in town schools there will only be one location for enrichment, South Sa-Hali.

When is it?
The program will start on Tuesday July 5, with 14 daily sessions that are approx 3 hours (incl. 20 min break) in length running Monday-Friday, until July 22nd. Sessions will be in the morning (9am-12:00pm)

How much is it?

Where is it?
South Sa-Hali Elementary, Arthur Hatton Elementary, Chief Atahm School, Logan Lake Elementary,
Barriere Elementary, and Raft River Elementary

How do I register?
Registration will be through the SD 73 Summer School website:
Students need their Personal Education Number found on a report card to apply.

How can I get more information?
