SUMMER MATHCAMP: REFRESH, REVIEW AND RE-NEW-
grade 6-8 (For a flyer click here)
Morning Session- A review of the major concepts and procedures in Math 6. Students will develop arithmetic skills, work with fractions, decimals, percentages, area and perimeter, etc. Main focus: 6th grade curriculum. This session is ideal for incoming 6th grade students who will be taking Advanced Math and those hoping to place into Advanced Math in the fall.
Afternoon Session- This session is intended for students entering 7th and/or 8th grades in the fall. We will review both Math 7 and Math 8 topics in this session. Additional emphasis will be on problem solving and fundamentals of Algebra and Geometry.
Registration forms can be downloaded from www.clarkston.k12.mi.us/cec.
Summer Math Review Books recommended by the SMS Math Department:
MCTM has some 'Adventures with Mathematics' books to climb from one grade to the next. Here is a link:http://www.mictm.org/index.php/shop?page=shop.browse&category_id=9
The books are only $12.50 and review the previous year is a fun, thought-provoking way. They are aligned to the Common Core. For advanced students, I would recommend one grade level ahead (two for Algebra) in addition to the current grade.

The Oakland Summer Writer’s Camp is for those who love to write! Each day is filled with opportunities to learn writer’s craft. Ideas will grow layer by layer as campers work with fellow writers and teachers to find golden words and just right lines. Returning students will practice brand new layers that will push their writing to the next level. The camp includes a walking field trip through historic, downtownClarkston. Friends and family are invited to attend an end-of-camp celebration that includes students sharing their writing as well as a published anthology of student work.
We are looking forward to an awesome summer writing camp where we guide your child through a memorable writing adventure. We have lots of experience in teaching young writers. During our writing workshop we use popular children’s books as models in our mini lessons. Each writer receives daily one to one attention as they develop each layer of their stories.We hope you will think about sending your child to this special camp. This year, we are pleased to offer two sessions. Space is limited so sign up today to secure your child’s spot in our Summer Writers’ Camp. Some scholarship funds are available. Check with your school’s PTA, PTO or Community Education.
