Free Summer Math Program

Research shows that students can lose 2-3 months of grade level math equivalency over the summer.  We are delighted to inform you about a free program offered by TenMarks that will provide your child with free access to a personalized summer math program.

To sign your child up for the program, go to:

Access Code:  32636

Before summer break, you will receive an email with access details for your child.  At the start of the program, your child will receive a short diagnostic assessment based on the grade level he/she will be entering in the fall.  TenMarks will create a personalized program for your child to complete over the summer months.  An hour a week is all it takes to strengthen math skills and prepare for the year ahead.
