SUMMER LITERACY AND MATH PROGRAMS - Grade 7 & 8

Intermediate Transitional Math Camp

This two week summer program is designed for students who would benefit from additional practice and assistance to ease their transition into Grade 8 & 9. As part of the program, students will have access to computers.

Numeracy Through Robotics Camp

Robotics is a motivational tool that brings math, science and technology to life in the classroom. Robotics enables students to "do" mathematics rather than study it. Robotics offers students a unit of study that implicitly demonstrates the application of math, science and technology as well as reinforce numeracy skills such as Numbers and Operations, Algebra, Geometry, Measurement, Problem Solving, Reasoning and Proof; and Communications. Students will have a basic understanding of sensor based measurements, applications for angles, counted and timed events and other computer-based math.

Literacy Through the Arts Camp

The arts can play a vital role in literacy. Students can be initially engaged in reading by focusing on their comprehension and enjoyment of a given story, poem, chant, or rhyme. Fundamentally, balanced literacy revolves around two primary strands, a reading strand and a writing strand, each of which mirrors the other.

Principal and teacher recommendations are requested for these programs, however, parents may initiate an application.Registrations forms are available from your child's school/teacher and must be returned to the home school.

Parents are responsible for transportation arrangements for all programs.

You will be contacted ONLY if your course is full, transferred or cancelled, otherwise, report to the summer school location on the first day.
