Summer Academy Success

Post date: Sep 9, 2011 6:32:22 PM

Approximately 100 students from our Catholic Schools who needed extra help to prepare for the next grade level (5th-8th grade) participated in the Summer Academy July 25-August 5 at Blessed Teresa of Calcutta and St. Norbert Schools.

Teachers provided small group tutoring and instruction in Math and Language Arts. “I was very impressed with the skill of the teachers, the behavior and effort of the students, and the cooperation of the parents,” said Mrs. Sue Anthony, teacher and coordinator at the St. Norbert site. “The other day I was observing an eighth grade math class when I heard a student enthusiastically and proudly remark, ‘I know this! I learned it during the Summer Academy.’ I believe we hit the target!” Anthony is the learning consultant for St. Norbert School.
