Dear Parents,
In an effort to clarify our expectations and provide more uniformity through all grades, we have provided information on our summer reading and math requirements for all grade levels. Please take the time to review the expectations for your child as they pertain to his/her incoming grade. Feel free to contact the school office for clarification. We thank you in advance for the role that you play in providing for your child the opportunity to work toward academic excellence. May God continue to bless you and your families during the summer months.
Sincerely,
Notre Dame Faculty

Reading
It is our goal to further develop the reading skills learned in school by providing our students with the opportunity to read good, quality literature. We ask for your cooperation in choosing appropriate literature during the summer. Please be cognizant of your childs reading level as well as appropriate titles and content. Notre Dame will reserve the right to reject books not appropriate for student reading.
Math
In the area of Math, it is imperative that students master both basic math facts and concepts in an effort to successfully proceed to the next level of the curriculum. It is our goal to encourage students to maintain skills taught during the school year. We are asking for your support during the summer in achieving this goal. The time devoted to math during the summer months will help with a smooth transition in this curriculum area.
