The Halton Catholic District School Board’s Thomas Merton Centre for Continuing Education is pleased to be offering Literacy and Math Summer Programs for Grades 6, 7, and 8 students. Classes run Monday to Friday from July 4 – July 15, 2022 (Session 1) and July 18 – July 29, 2022 (Session 2) from 8:00 am – 1:30 pm.
Please note that due to the current COVID-19 situation, the health and well-being of our students continues to remain our highest priority.
NOTE: Teachers will be committed to providing an engaging educational experience and interactive lessons in a virtual format to review the past school year, in preparation for next year. Educators will provide live and/or pre-recorded lessons for all students.
This two-week summer program is designed for students who would benefit from additional practice and assistance to ease their transition into Grade 7, 8 & 9. Students will participate in engaging lessons to meet their individual needs and learning styles.
Students can be initially engaged in reading by focusing on their comprehension and enjoyment of a given story, poem, blog, or news report. Fundamentally, balanced literacy revolves around two primary strands, are a reading strand and a writing strand, each of which mirrors the other. Engaging lessons will be provided to ensure all students’ needs and learning styles are met.
- Principal and teacher recommendations are requested for these programs; however, parents may initiate an application.
- This year’s Grade 6, 7, & 8 Summer School Programs will be offered through remote/virtual format with synchronous learning.
- You will be contacted ONLY if your course is full or cancelled.
- Student transportation to and from the summer school programs will not be provided. Parents are responsible for transportation arrangements for all programs.
