Summer Math Assignments


Students will sign in to IXL and click on Recommendations ( which is under Learning). If you are a new student and don't have an IXL account with St. Dominic School, please contact the office for the information.


The only requirement for this summer math assignment is that students must complete a minimum of 4 hours of work on their personal recommendations, based on their grade level.


We will look over summer IXL work once school starts in September. Students who worked on their assignments for the minimum number of hours for their grade will earn a 100 for their first homework assignment of the 2021-2022 school year.


Please know you may bring a snack for half days. We hope you enjoy this summer time with your family and friends!


God Bless,

Mrs. Fondonella & Ms. Schifano
