Summer Bridging 2018

Summer is a time of much needed relaxation. However, research has shown that students can lose two months or more of learning each summer. Hallahan’s teachers bridge that summer gap by assigning some work in each curricular area for the students to complete in a leisurely fashion. With these  assignments, the students’ minds are engaged and teachers find that students are better prepared to start school. The links below are the assignments for summer 2018. Please work on the assignments for any subjects you may be taking. For example, if you haven’t chosen art for next year, do not do the art assignment. The assignments should have full instructions attached. If you have any questions, please contact the Academic Office at 215-563-8930 ext 232. Thanks and enjoy the summer!
