Lower School Summer Homework

It is important we stay up on our summer studies so I students don’t fall behind during the summer months!  Help us make sure everyone completes their summer homework assignments and return to school prepared and ready for another amazing year!

NOTE:  The math packet is substantially thicker versus the reading packet for each grade. This is because students will receive a series of books/novels next week that are resources for summer reading. The Reading packet is a compliment to these books.

Lower School Supplies (Optional)

For the 19-20 academic year Explore Charter School is working to provide all supplies that students and classrooms may need. Doing this will hopefully alleviate a financial burden on our families.  If families wish to provide resources, we ask you to only provide them for your child(ren) and not for the classroom. Additionally, please only provide as much (of the following items) as might be needed at one time. Do not send bulk-purchased supplies with your child(ren) on the first day of school.

If you wish to provide your child(ren) with any supplies for the coming year, please provide the following:

  • 2-3 pencils
  • 1 large pink eraser
  • 1 glue stick
  • 2-3 pens
  • 1 vinyl pouch to store pens, pencils, and other resources
  • 1 small tube or bottle of hand sanitizer
  • Either 1 wide-rule notebook or a 3-ring binder and a pack of wide-ruled loose leaf paper to put
  • inside the binder
  • A 12-pack of colored pencils
  • A small box of crayons
