Summer is here - but we want your students to keep progressing!

Research has shown that students lose over two months' mathematical proficiency over the summer break. We want to turn that around.

So we're running a special incentive to keep your students answering questions on Sumdog each week. As they play, our adaptive learning engine will help them progress through the standards.

We'll incentivize your students - all you need to do is tell them about it!

Wonderful News from Dr. Good

Important Message from Dr. Good, Principal:

I have some fabulous news that we want to share and celebrate.

-Memorial Drive Elementary School has been recognized by the Governor's Office of Student Achievement as…
• Performing higher than 72% of schools in the state
• As having academic growth higher than 80% of schools in the state
• And for “Beating the Odds”, meaning that we perform better than similar schools

-Our current CCRPI score is an 81. Our goal is to increase this at least to an 84 this year and to raise our score to an “A” in the very near future.
