Summer Assignments for Middle School

Reading

During the summer, students can potentially lose up to 3 months' worth of reading progress over one summer, adding up to almost 2 years of loss throughout a K-12 career.  To combat this, the faculty and staff of MICS expect all students to read over the summer break. 
  
 

Math

It is not uncommon for students to lose about two months of grade-level equivalency in mathematical computation skills over the summer months.  Several studies have been dedicated to this topic.  Click on the link to learn more about summer loss research.
