Does your Grade 7 or 8 son or daughter need help with reading, writing, computational skills and math?
Summer Skills Builder, offered the first 2 weeks of July will give them the confidence and fill some of the learning gaps to be successful in the next Grade level.
If your Gr. 7 or 8 child needs help to get through this transitional time and grades or study habits are suffering, encourage them to get the extra help he/she needs. Certified Intermediate qualified teachers will provide instruction and additional resources to assist with the skills and tasks that follow this year’s curriculum ~ prepare them for tests and assignments at the next grade level by filling in learning gaps with a more solid understanding of literary and numeric concepts & formulas, using fun and engaging exercises. As a parent or teacher, when your child is lost in school, their confidence is affected.
