• Bethel Middle School Summer Learning


    Summer is here! We have some summer tasks to keep your learning fresh.


    Math: All students are assigned 10 hours of summer math practice (that’s 1 hour per week) on IXL. Login information will be sent to student email accounts during the summer. Your fall teachers will check your total hours on the system to verify that you have completed 10 hours. For specific information on which sections to practice, click here.


    Reading: Summer reading packets will be available on our website in June. Plan to read one of these books before the end of August. Packets due on Sep. 1, 2016.  To download packets, click here.
