Avoid academic inactivity! Don’t let your child’s mind get “summer stale.” Tools4School will feature drills and assignments in both English and Math, reviewing material from the past school year and introducing material for the upcoming grade level. And since it’s summer, teachers make sure to make it fun! Your child will be given an assessment his or her first day of camp, so as to be placed with the proper group. For full benefit, it’s recommended that children attend three or four weeks (though not necessarily consecutive) in order to avoid too many weeks of academic inactivity. There’s no homework outside of class, but on Fridays students will bring home the work they’ve completed during the week.   Note: This is a half-day camp.
