What parents of previous students are saying:
“My son came home and actually asked why I had not signed him up for more sessions! He not only enjoyed being in the review class with friends, which made it more fun and comfortable for learning, he really liked the way the review was taught on a level which was understandable. He even enjoyed the competitions and was proud when he told me he got the problem correct. . !”

“My child had a blast and learned so much! He particularly enjoyed the games and competitions that made learning fun! Thank you!”

“Because the kids were still in summer mode, I think it was great that it was relaxed, fun, and educational – all at the same time.”

100% of parents said they felt the sessions gave their students a head start in mathfor the school year and increased their confidence in math!*
“My son thoroughly enjoyed it and will be attending next year. Please have these sessions again.”

“My children both really enjoyed the sessions and wished that I had signed them up for more. I think this was an excellent idea. It really was an excellent refresher and helped them remember things they may have forgotten.”

“I am pleased we made the decision for our daughter to attend the math sessions. The review gave her confidence for beginning 6th grade. Even though she was doing “school work,” she was having fun while learning.”

92% were “highly likely” to recommend the sessions to a friend!*
“I think this was such a wonderful idea! I am thrilled that these were offered to help refresh or pre-teach math concepts. Both of my sons attended multiple sessions. They enjoyed them and spoke very highly of Ms. Wetmore. It was amazing that they enjoyed them because prior to attending, they were furious that I signed them up for math during the summer!”*Based on parents’ voluntary responses from end-of-session survey

What courses should I sign my student up for?
The following table shows the approximate* session content covered in grade level math courses, showing topics learned this year that need review for next year, and additional content to be learned next year. Remember sessions are intended for review of content already learned. However, students may attend sessions on material they have not previously learned for enrichment.
For example, if your student was a rising 5th grader, Sessions 1-3 would be completely review; Sessions 4-8 would be part review and part enrichment, and would be content they would be learning this upcoming school year; and Sessions 8-15 would be nearly all enrichment, content they would learn in future years. *may vary from year-to-year, from instructor-to-instructor, and from school-to-school

= all or nearly all = more than half= approximately half= less than half = nearly not at all or not at all
