Wilson Summer Learning

Welcome to Wilson Elementary School Summer Learning Contract

For students every school year is a time of learning, but turn the page to summer and learning can begin to fade.

Fact is, summer break can take away a month or two of learning progress. We call this learning loss the "Summer Slide."

Research says that this loss can add up year after year which contributes to an achievement gap. This separates too many children from the opportunities they deserve. By continuing learning through the summer we can prevent the Summer Slide! All you have to do is discuss the choices on the Wilson contract and sign the form at our Student Showcase on Tuesday, May 14th any time between 2:30 and 5:30.

Here are the options:

Choice 1 - Digital Online Personalized Learning Platforms

Reading: Achieve(grades 3-5)- 2 articles and activities a week, Lexia -meet 1/2 to all of weekly minutes / Razz-kids- 2 stories a week, and Dreambox-2 lessons per week, for math. Students already have logins and are able to continue work from this year. The other digital option would be Education Galaxy which has reading, math and language. On this platform we would encourage your child to continue to work on grade-level standards before moving to the grade above.

Choice 2- Library Summer Program along with Non-Tech Everyday math activities.

You can sign up for this program during the Student Showcase as well.

Choice 3 - DOJO Bingo: This is a matrix of ideas that covers reading, writing, math, enrichment, and outdoor choices. When choosing this option we ask that you do at least 10 different ideas throughout the whole summer and save evidence of the activities. (See bingo sheet here)

Choice 4 - Summer School: Wilson’s summer school will run Monday-Thursday beginning July 8th through August 1. A flyer has been sent home to all students, if interested please send back ASAP because space is limited. An optional tot camp will be available at Wilson from 12:30-3:30. Students need to be signed in and out by an adult.
