Middle School Reading and Math Summer Learning Information

This year, the Grain Valley Summer School Staff is looking to utilize our time in June to individualize student learning and increase achievement. We have two options this Summer to specifically target the areas of Reading and Math. The class titles are Reading Explorations and Math Investigations. Each class will be held during the normal Summer School schedule, and by attending, the students will receive the equivalent of 50 school days of additional instruction for that subject in a small-group setting. Students may choose to do either class, or both. During the time they are not in one of these classes, they will be able to join enrichment classes from the Middle School Summer School Menu.  We hope you take advantage of this wonderful opportunity! If you have any questions, please contact:

Course Descriptions:

Reading Explorations: Specifically designed for students who need extra instruction in Reading, this program will be a great way to avoid summer backslide and increase achievement. The students who are chosen for this opportunity will have smaller class sizes and more individualized instruction. With materials and lessons created to make the Reading program educational and fun, students will leave with a boost of confidence and an increase in success in reading. In this class, they will learn reading skills they can take into the next school year and beyond.

Math Investigations: Designed to supplement the Grain Valley Middle School Math curriculum, this program focuses on reinforcing the skills necessary for success in Math class. Using a “back to basics” approach, our instructors will work with students to build their Math skills from the ground up. With materials and lessons designed to engage student thinking and increase student achievement, students will improve their Math skills and learn strategies they can take into next school year and beyond.


Classes will be held at Grain Valley High School. Classes are from June 4-29.
 The Summer School Schedule runs from 7:30-2:15, Monday through Friday.
