Summer homework & 21-22 Important dates

Summer Homework


Students who are attending GBMS or KBMS in the Fall of 2021 are required to complete the Math Practice Packet.  The problems and skills addressed in the Practice Packet are designed to help reinforce much of the content covered during the previous school year so that every student is ready to hit the ground running when they come back to school in August.  There is an optional Khan Academy Playlist below.  This playlist focuses on key math skills and concepts.

Required: Math Practice Packet (paper-based)

Play math games, work on puzzles, and practice important skills with your friends and family.  You can complete the printed copy of the packet or you can access the packets using the links below (and solve the problems on your own paper).  Remember to bring the completed packet/work back the first week of school.  

Optional: Khan Academy Playlist

Each playlist has 4 topics from previous grades and one topic you can choose. Each topic includes multiple video tutorials and 1-3 practice modules. Parents/guardians will need to set up accounts through their own email, or current students can use their GBMS/KBMS gmail.
