    • Bingo Bored – Summer is a great time to relax and unwind. However, summer is also a great time to explore, discover, invent, craft, construct, and yes…even learn! We want to see you experience something new this summer so we created a program called Bingo Bored. Bingo Bored is a 5 x 5 activity board filled with opportunities and challenges. KMS students will have until the first full school day to complete as many activities on this sheet as you can. When you return to us in the fall, students will turn in their Bingo Bored to the KMS main office for your credit. For every five (5) activities you have approved, you will earn one (1) Kennett Square. When you complete a full row, column or diagonal and you will earn one (1) Golden Kennett Square. A fully completed board will earn you automatically earn you a LEVEL 1 Kennett PRIDE wristband. Parents and guardians are not allowed to approve more than ten (10) total challenges. When possible, seek the signature of an adult associated with the task such as a business owner, librarian, community event organizer, policeman, etc.
  • Reminder about ALEKS https://www.aleks.com/ – Accounts are active and accessible over the summer! Work to fill your pie and use QuickTables to prevent regression in fact fluency!
