Math Program 

Time: 8:30 am - 1:30 pm

This two-week summer program is designed for students who would benefit from additional practice and assistance to ease their transition into Grade 7, 8 & 9 math.  Students will participate in engaging lessons to meet their individual needs and learning styles.

Literacy Program

Time: 8:30 am - 1:30 pm

Students can initially be engaged in reading by focusing on their comprehension and enjoyment of a given story, poem, blog, or news report.  Fundamentally, balanced literacy revolves around two primary strands, a reading strand and a writing strand, each of which mirrors the other.  Engaging lessons will be provided to ensure all students' needs and learning styles are met.

French Immersion (Literacy)

Time: 8:30 am - 1:30 pm

To support French Immersion students, a focus on oral communication skills will provide a strong foundation for developing reading and writing skills. Students will be provided with opportunities to engage in speaking and listening activities as well as, reading and writing tasks in order to build their literacy skills.
