Summer Enrichment Course

Enroll for Summer Enrichment

 

Dear students and parent(s),                 

Covington Latin School offers enrichment programs in Pre-Algebra and Language Arts for interested students.  The courses are designed for students in the 5th, 6th, or 7th grade who feel they may be well-served with some additional preparation, whether coming to CLS or not sure yet.  Many of our students (and their parents) have found value in the program and felt that it aided them refreshment exercises in not only Math and Language Arts, but also study skills areas.

This is not only a good opportunity to determine your child’s potential (a written evaluation will be given out at the end), but also a chance for your child to meet future classmates and become familiar with the school.  So although your child might be strong in the following areas, it will give them a glimpse of the homework to come and get acquainted with CLS. You do not have to be enrolled to attend CLS to take this course. You may use this course to determine if your child is ready to advance. The evaluation on your child’s work in the class will be sent within 2 weeks after the final test in the class.

Although no grade or credit will be given for these courses, the program will require a serious commitment on the part of each student. A total of 21 classroom hours should be complemented with an equal amount of work outside the classroom. A student may take both courses. The cost for one course is $150.00, which includes the use of our textbooks.  Below is more information on the program and what is being taught. I hope you strongly consider sending your child, since it can only help them to have these skills reinforced. I also do notebook checks and incorporate study skills through the courses. 


English summer enrichment will cover:

  • diagrams
  • writing a 5 paragraph essay and thesis
  • reading novels
  • sentence parts/structure
  • grammar and parts of speech

 

Pre-Algebra enrichment will cover:

- addition, subtraction, multiplication and division of whole numbers and fractions and decimals

-   sales/tax word problems

-Areas/perimeter 

-How to read numbers

- decimal/fraction/ percentage conversions

 



 

As I teach the class currently, and have since 2003, please contact me if I may answer any questions or provide additional assistance with your transition to Covington Latin School.

Sincerely,

Stephanie Tewes

Dean of Studies

**If you would rather teach your child the class?  I can give you all of the information for $75 per course.  (Or maybe they take one course at CLS and do the other course at home with a parent).

**Additional private tutoring of the course is also available and can be planned around our summer schedules. $35 /hr  Or I can set you up with a CLS student that needs service hours. 

 **Will you be on vacation for 1 week of the course? Here is what I have come up with in the past to compromise. You have 3 options

 1. Take the first week- pay full price. Do the 2nd week as an independent study--I will get all of the information together (remind me that Friday please). We can meet prior to the final exams- when you return from vacation- in both subjects for last minute questions/confusion. Then he/she can take the exams that same day with me.

2. Take the first week- pay half price. Do the 2nd week with me private tutoring wise (I usually charge $35/hour, but it should not take too long working one on one to get the information. We can meet at a local library or at CLS). Then he/she can take the final exams when he/she and I feel he/she is ready to take them.

3. Do both courses independent study- $75 for all of the course work per subject. We can do private tutoring if you find that he/she isn't really grasping it.
