 Study Island: Students are encouraged to keep up on their mathematics over the summer by continuing to use the Study Island program from previous grade levels, as well as current and upcoming grade levels.

What is Study Island?
     Study Island is a computer-based program that 7th and 8th graders will use throughout the school year. This program is specifically meant to help students with their mathematics, as well as math testing. Each student has their own unique log-in and password. The assignments are posted once every two weeks, and can be accessed from anywhere that has internet access; no disks or software is required.

Student incentives?
     As students become proficient in one of the many topics regarding middle school mathematics, the students will earn a blue ribbon for that content. Students will record these blue ribbons on their own progress map which shows each of them when they can earn various rewards to be used in math class. These rewards consists of bonus points, free 100 on a quiz, drop your lowest grade, and to our ultimate goal of a pizza party at the end of the year for those that complete the blue ribbon map.
