Summer Academic Preparation

Summer is a wonderful time for students to play, pray, rest, read and spend time with families; to provide some 'down' time. We are certain that your summer plans will include enriching learning activities for your daughters. In order to keep their reading skills sharp over the upcoming months, we will be requiring summer reading activities. In August, the teachers will collect and review the work completed over the summer. We know that this reinforcement will continue to help them grow as learners. We are looking forward to seeing your family in August.

Summer Math

During the summer months, many skills that children have learned throughout the school year can be forgotten. It is often referred to as summer learning loss proving that these skills must be practiced. It is our hope that every summer the students continue to practice the skills that were learned throughout the school year. This summer we are asking students to continue this practice by working on the ALEKS website that many of them have been using throughout the year.
What is ALEKS?
Assessment and LEarning in Knowledge Spaces is a Web-based, artificially intelligent assessment and learning system. ALEKS uses adaptive questioning to quickly and accurately determine exactly what a student knows and doesn't know in a course. ALEKS then instructs the student on the topics she is most ready to learn. As a student works through a course, ALEKS periodically reassesses the student to ensure that topics learned are also retained. ALEKS courses are very complete in their topic coverage and ALEKS avoids multiple-choice questions. A student who shows a high level of mastery of an ALEKS course will be successful in the actual course she is taking. (from
Students are expected to spend one hour per week on the website as spacing out practice is more effective than doing a lot all at once. Spaced practice creates endurable learning. While not required, students are welcome to further their learning by exploring additional lessons, any math website, or resource of their choosing.  Teachers will not be monitoring their progress throughout the summer but will review in September. The deadline to complete the assigned skills is Thursday, August 12th.
Students new to Carrollton will receive instructions on how to access and log into ALEKS via email. Please stay tuned for this information as summer approaches.

Mentor Program

The Mentor Program is a program to help new families (Mentees) in adjusting to life at Carrollton.  The program is set up to help pass along the special heritage of Sacred Heart, the importance of the Goals and Criteria, and what it means to be part of our family.  We have two wonderful parents who will be our Mentor Liaisons, Maria McMillan for Grades 7-12, and Michelle Berio Calderin for Grades M3-6.  Their job is to ensure that the families connect and share with the Mentors on the happenings at the school.  Mentors will be assigned in May with intentions that they reach out to the Mentees before summer.
