2019 Be Fearless Be Kind Pledge

Mountain Heights Academy is encouraging its students to take the “Be Fearless Be Kind Pledge!” As the school year is approaching and Summer is here, we want you to take the pledge and make a difference in your community. The “Be Fearless Be Kind Pledge” is designed to “inspire and empower kids to have compassion, empathy, and courage to stand up for others and be inclusive.” What better way to spend your Summer then to go out and help make our community a better place!

Summer Reading Challenge

Summer Reading Challenge

Need an adventure this summer? 

There are few better ways to experience something new than through a book. Join your Mountain Heights Academy peers and teachers as we get lost in the pages. For every 5 books you read and fill out a form for, you will get to choose a free book from our collection at the school or we will mail you a book of your choosing (digital or hard copy). Additionally, the student and the teacher who read the most books during the summer will win a Kindle e-reader or King’s English gift card.  

When: May 27th-August 27th, 2019

Requirements:

  • For each book you read, submit THIS form

  • You should try to pick books that challenge you a little bit. Picture books do not count toward this challenge. (Although we do believe picture books are for all ages!)

Questions? Contact Jennifer Wecker (jwecker@mountainheightsacademy.org)

Need Book Ideas? HERE is a list divided by genre. Also, be on the lookout for live sessions with your English teachers about using the library and recently published books.



Summer Math Challenge

Summer Math Challenge

Do you need to brush up on your math skills? 

Or maybe you want to get a jump start on math so that you can hit the ground running next year?

We've got the plan for you. (And it's free)

Mountain Heights Academy is offering all current and future students the opportunity to participate in our Summer Math Challenge.  Students can increase their math skills or simply practice what they have learned, to avoid the 'summer slide'. Teachers will design and assist students with a math goal-- and then monitor and help them work towards their goal in EdReady, a personalized learning system.

Are you interested?  Click here to sign up.

(This summer program is not for credit. There are no grades, just an opportunity for students to find success in mathematics, with some additional teacher support along the way.)
