Summer at NPS 2023
NPS Summer 2023
Summer is a great time to have fun, relax and spend time with family and friends. It’s also a time when our scholars can receive additional help in supporting them to stay on course for academic success and to reach graduation.
Norwalk Public Schools and our community partners are offering tons of fun and educational opportunities this summer for all our students to stay active and thrive in the classroom when they return to school in the fall.
Keep up your child's math skills!
Over the summer, NPS encourages families to utilize the Governor's Math Challenge! In this challenge, families will find access to Khan Academy, which helps students prepare for third grade through high school. Information is also available for parents and tasks for different activities.
Summer is also a great time to practice math fluency. Families can accomplish this with board games and card games, flash cards, and many different websites. See below for some online math options.
