IT’S VACATION STATION TIME! Information flyers are in your child’s Monday Folder.  What are Vacation Stations?

  • Through all the vacation activities, what students learned during the school year may fade a little over the summer break. With Vacation Stations activity books, students who have just completed K-Grade 6 can sharpen their academic skills and prepare for the next grade.

  • Students can build confidence with a total of two pages a day that review math, language, and reading. Vacation Stations blend grade –appropriate practice with colorful characters and exciting themes.

  • Be sure to keep your child’s brain turned up by ordering your Vacation Stations Summer Review Workbook.
