Summer Learning: Sailing to September
Ready-Access for Summer Learning
Wilton Public Schools is thrilled to provide all our students an opportunity to sail into the summer - and September - with access to resources and digital tools to fit any student's learning interests. Our "
Sail to September" program extends ready-access into the summer with something for everyone. Whether a student is home on a rainy day, needs a great book for a day in the sun, or just wants to practice math, science or technology skills, Wilton Public Schools provides access to meet those needs.
The Flipbook provided here (the image will take you to an eBook too) includes reading suggestions from our Learning Commons staff, ELA departments and Wilton Public Library. CLICK ON IMAGE ABOVE TO OPEN UP FLIP BOOK or CLICK HERE.
NOTE - It's important that you check with each school for any special requirements. At Middlebrook, there are no specific title requirements (so enjoy) - however, students should read at least three books during the summer.
The Math, Science and Technology practice section below includes a variety of links to practice STEM skills. Included are summer work opportunities for students finishing 6th and 7th grade. There is a packet available as well as IXL practice. The summer work is optional; however, we do encourage students to continue to practice their mathematical skills over the summer.
Chromebook Take-Home Program for Students Entering Grades 6-9 - Summer 2019
Ready-Access Summer Learning Letter to Parents
While all students have access to these resources from home, our students entering Grades 6-9 in September 2019 will also be permitted to take their device home for the summer, providing a great transition to middle school for our 5th graders and ongoing access to their own device through the summer for all students entering 7th and 8th grades. Our 9th grade students will be asked to return the chromebooks at Wilton High School as they will be asked to bring their own device from home (BYOD Program). Please note that this does NOT represent required work for the summer (unless specifically requested by a WHS department - check with those departments).
Have a wonderful, restful summer break!
