Reading and Math Summer Challenge for PVE Students

Have your children keep their academic skills sharp to prevent summer regression by participating in our PVE Summer Challenge.  Students of all grades and ages are encouraged to participate in our Lexia and Khan Academy programs.  There are three levels of prizes for our participants, but of course the greatest benefit is to student learning.  See the attached document for specifics regarding this challenge.
