Summer Assignments for Middle School


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. 


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.
