CMS Summer Learning Blitz


Parents, are you looking for ways to keep your child learning during the summer? Are you looking for free safe educational web tools that you child can access anywhere, anytime? This summer students are encouraged to play using digital tools. The district has provided free access to digital tools that build math and reading skills. Simply visit the Summer Learning Blitz website to access the digital tools. Students have a chance to win prizes based on the amount of time they spend learning using digital tools. For every hour students spend on one of the three digital tools (Compass Learning, Kids A to Z, DreamBox) students will have their name entered into the drawing. The more time students spend on these tools, the more times their names will be entered to win AMAZING prizes.

The Summer Learning Blitz website will be live May 26. We will begin tracking student usage on June 13.
