Summer is here but the learning can continue in many other ways!
Encourage your student to explore an area of interest with Brecknock’s Summer Challenge.
BrainPop is a great resource for fun and learning. Check out their flyer for ways to receive summer ideas.

Read Across America Week
Achieve 3000 is having another contest for our students. Our last class winner was Mrs. Snyder’s 6th grade class. Which class will win this contest?
From February 12 through March 9, when students in grades 2-6 complete lessons on Achieve’s differentiated literacy platform, they will earn contest points. Every activity that a student completes, whether in class, at home, or anywhere else, earns his or her class a point. Plus, double and even triple points are awarded for high scores so that students are motivated to achieve the greatest possible reading growth. The class at Brecknock with the most points at the end of the contest wins!
