Did you know that students can lose up to 3 months of math learning over the summer?
Avoid the summer slide and join in the first annual Arma Dei Summer Math Minutes Competition!
Qualifying students will be treated to a donut party during the first week of school.
- Students in grades 5-8 must log 800 math minutes to qualify for the donut party.
- Students in grades 1-4 must log 500 math minutes to qualify for the donut party.
Students can practice math in any way that works for your family. Keep track of your minutes (just like you do for your reading minutes) and log them in on the Parent Portal on June 1, July 1, August 1, and August 19.
- You may track your math (and reading) minutes on this document (please remember to report these minutes in the parent portal).
If you need guidance on where to find math to work on, try these resources:
Awards will also be presented to the students who log the most minutes each month, the most minutes in their own grade, as well as the top three overall mathematicians in the school.
Participation in summer math is required for students who have a test average below 80%.
Students in this category will be contacted directly by their teacher with their individual requirements by May 31st. This will include a math practice packet as well as a summary of the top 5 math skills they need to focus on overall. Math packets and minutes must be logged and returned to their new teacher on the first day of school, August 19th.
Please contact Mrs. Gonzales with any questions.
