2. SUMMER EXPEDITIONS
Is your child currently in Grade 6, 7 or 8…. going into Grade 7, 8 or 9 this September? Does your child need help with reading, writing, math and technology skills? Are there gaps in their learning due to Covid-19 school closures? Are they losing interest in school because they just aren’t doing as well as they used to?
