Dear Families,

Even though summer is here, the learning never stops! Our faculty is committed to offering opportunities for students to sharpen their skills over the summer months. 

This site is dedicated to incoming 6th, 7th, and 8th graders at all three middle schools in the district to ensure that every student is aware of the mandatory summer assignments in all subject areas. (Students entering grade 9 should refer to the Danbury High School website.)  

The literacy assignment will consist of reading two books and creating one project for each book. The math assignment will be to complete a daily problem. ESL students, please check your tab above for additional information. Detailed instructions can be found on the "Summer Assignments for All Grades" which is located above.

Some assignments require the use of a computer. The Danbury Public Library has computers available for public use.

All summer work is due to the appropriate teacher by September 4, 2018, but will be accepted through September 7th for full credit.

Thank you, in advance, for all you do; it really does make a difference!

Help your child be successful!


  • Provide a quiet place where your child can work.
  • Early in the summer, help your child organize a plan to complete the work.
  • Check often to be sure your child is sticking to the plan.
  • Remind your child not to wait until the last week of summer to complete the work.  Instead, do a little at a time starting at the beginning of the summer.
  • Read as often as possible. Every day is best!
  • Take family trips to the public library.
  • Allow your child to choose what they read.
  • Talk with your child about what he/she is reading.
