Summer is a time to rest, relax and enjoy time with family and friends. It is also a time to continue the learning that takes place throughout the school year. Research indicates that some students will fall 2 or 3 months behind in their learning during the summer months if they are not making time to continue practicing their reading, writing, and math skills.
Below are the resources that the Garfield Elementary School and Revere Public Schools send home with students for them to complete during the months of July and August so that they start the next school year set up for academic success:
Students are not limited to these lists and are encouraged to read books they are interested in and books that are appropriate for their age and reading level. The books in these notices are readily available at the school libraries and the Revere Public Library. School libraries will be open from 9:00-11:30 am on Tuesdays during the months of June and July.
The Garfield School library will be closed this summer, and so Garfield students should visit the Beachmont School library or the Revere Public Library to borrow books.
