Literacy and math program begins July 9; registrations now being accepted

May 2018

Dear Families:

All current A.A. Gates Elementary students have been invited to the Summertime Literacy and Math (SLAM) program! This program is intended to minimize loss of skills over the summer, to maintain/enhance current skills, and to preview material that will be introduced at the next grade level. Certified teachers staff the program, along with teaching assistants.

SLAM 2018 will be held JULY 9-AUG 2, MONDAY-THURSDAY, 8:30am-12:30pm.


Students who participate in SLAM may attend the Kick Off to SLAM field trip to Fair Haven State Park on July 12!

Busing will be provided! You will be notified of pick up/drop off times after bus runs have been created.

Your support is the single most important element in your child’s educational success. Please feel free to contact your child’s teacher or one of us with any questions.

We are excited to be able to invite a large number of students to SLAM. Therefore, it is imperative to complete this form as soon as possible for planning purposes.

Due to the increased number of students attending the program, regular attendance is necessary. With prior approval, one week of family vacations/summer camps will be excused.

Mrs. Kelly Guy (SLAM Coordinator) ext 1208
