Summer Literacy and Numeracy

Summer Literacy and Numeracy Programs – Grade 6, 7 & 8

Intermediate Transitional Numeracy Camp

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. As part of the program, students will have access to computers.

Literacy Through the Arts Camp

The arts can play a vital role in literacy. Students can be initially engaged in reading by focusing on their comprehension and enjoyment of a given story, poem, chant, or rhyme. Fundamentally, balanced literacy revolves around two primary strands, a reading strand and a writing strand, each of which mirrors the other.

Principal and teacher recommendations are requested for these programs, however, parents may initiate an application.

Parents are responsible for transportation arrangements for all programs.

You will be contacted ONLY if your course is full, transferred or cancelled, otherwise, report to the summer school location on the first day.
