Eighth grade: preparing for September

Eighth grade summer work

June 2020

Dear rising eighth grader,

Your teachers from this past year prepared a math packet for you to complete before school starts in September.

Your new teacher next year will expect you to have this work complete by the first day of school, so please bring your completed work with you that day. We recommend that you do a little of this work every few days over the summer, or maybe pick a day each week to work for an hour on it. This way, you will keep these concepts and skills fresher in your mind, which should make the start of the year easier.  

If you have trouble remembering how to do a particular kind of problem, just do the best you can and show your work. Your teacher will understand if you forget things or make mistakes, but do try each problem!

You can also check the Math in Focus website to review skills or concepts. We hope this practice is helpful for you this summer. Please contact either Mr. Kravitz or Mr. Burnstein if you have any questions.

We would also like you to continue reading this summer. Please draw on the summer reading list for this work. Summer reading books do not need to be purchased, feel free to take advantage of your local library! There are also books that are available as digital audio books and as ebooks. Instructions on how to access those are in the summer reading booklet. 

Have a wonderful summer!

Sincerely,

Gabe Burnstein
Middle School Director
