TheSummerBridgeworkbook provides lessons/activities that cover math, reading, writing, science, and social studies. The intention of the summer workbook is to help keep students' skills sharp. The math portions of the text are the most important portions to complete but we encourage the boys to work on the other skills as well. The Summer Bridge text will be used in grades 2-5. Pre-first and first grades will provide math packets. All materials can be picked up in the lower school office. In addition, The Summer Bridge activities workbook is available online at Amazon and in Barnes and Noble stores. Students entering grades 2-5 should complete the activities workbook for the grade they completed during the 2017-18 school year.
The school provides all necessary classroom supplies with the exception of the binder required for all students in grades three through five. Parents should discuss with their sons the type of binder that will best suit his organizational needs.

The Upper School does not assign a supply list. On the first day of school, each student should plan to bring their summer reading books, their computer, a notebook, and something to write with. In each of their classes they will be given a syllabus. The syllabus will outline the expectations for the class and any information that the students need to be successful.
The boys will have the opportunity to utilize a system of organization that works well for them. If they had a system in the middle school, they should plan to implement that in the Upper School.
Each summer, the upper school administrator schedules a time to meet 1:1 with each freshman and his parents to get to know the family and to better understand the student's goals and interests. Questions? Contact Upper School Head, Mr. Brian Mitchell at firstname.lastname@example.org.
