Summer Residential Governor’s Schools provide gifted high school juniors and seniors with intensive educational experiences in foreign language, visual and performing arts; humanities; mathematics, science, and technology; or through mentorships in marine science, medicine and health sciences, or engineering.
Each Summer Residential Governor’s School focuses on one special area of interest. Students live on a college or university campus for up to four weeks each summer. During this time, students are involved in classroom and laboratory work, field studies, research, individual and group projects and performances, and seminars with noted scholars, visiting artists, and other professionals. In the three mentorships, students are selected to work side-by-side with research scientists, physicians, and a variety of other professionals. A director and a student-life staff provide supervision of students 24 hours a day, throughout the program. For more information, please contact Dr. Maria Lawson-Davenport, Supervisor of Advanced Instruction K-12 at email@example.com or 757-925-6760.

Hello everyone! This week I plan to use M&Ms for a Monday graphing activity and Reese’s Pieces for a math activity on Friday. The students will have roughly ten pieces of each candy. Please let me know if you have any concerns about this.
Continue to complete activities on the study guide. Have fun with it! I can see the students are exploring letters, numbers and words at home. Awesome!
Remember to include a change of clothes in your child’s backpack and take note of the changing weather.
As always- please don’t hesitate to come to me with any questions and/or concerns.

Dear Parents and Guardians,
We fast approaching the end of this first marking period with benchmarks in Math, Science, and Social Studies. Please help you child review for these tests. They will cover thing the students have learned this marking period. The science department has provided us with a very nice study guide booklet which I will be sending home next week.
Please note that we are collecting Boxtops for Education. You can send them in with your student to give to me.
This week the students will continue to have homework. They will have homework Monday- Thursday unless otherwise noted. Important things to know about homework are:
• The homework sheet for the week, along with the spelling words, will be glued in your child’s agenda on Mondays.
• Please make sure your child reads TO you every night for 20 minutes. This is in addition to the 20 minute district homework policy. They can check out books on Monday during library. However, if they need a new one before then, they can visit the library between 9:00 and 9:20 AM.
• The spelling words are part of the reading skills for the week so please check that they are doing one menu item nightly and returning the assignment to school every day.
• I will send home a reading passage that your child needs to read to you nightly.
We will work on the following skills in Reading this nine weeks:
• Use consonants, consonant blends, and consonant digraphs to decode words.
• Use knowledge of short, long, and r-controlled vowel patterns to decode and spell words.
• Use information in the story to read words.
• Use knowledge of sentence structure.
• Use knowledge of story structure and sequence.
• Reread and self-correct
• Use vocabulary from other content areas.
• Ask and answer questions about what is read in fiction and nonfiction.
• Locate information to answer questions.
• Describe characters, setting, and important events in fiction and poetry.
• Identify main idea in fiction and nonfiction.
• Summarize stories and events with beginning middle, and end in the correct sequence.
• Draw conclusions based on text.
In Science this week, finish our unit on matter.
This week in Math the students will work on equality and inequality.
In Social Studies the students will explore Our Changing Communities. (past and present)
