Glencoe Summer Academy
As we end a school year unlike any other, District 35 is encouraging students and families to develop a weekly summer schedule that will support continued learning in critical math and reading skills.
To support continued learning, we are providing access to an online, adaptive resource called MobyMax that will help Kindergarten through our graduating 8th-grade students to learn and grow over the summer. Detailed information about this resource has been sent to families via email. We also welcome students and families to visit our Glencoe Summer Academy website for ideas on setting weekly routines and additional resources to support continued learning and exploration over the summer.

Updates from District 35
Please take a few minutes to view our video message with updates on plans within District 35. We have included news on:
• End-of-Year Reminders
• Summer Resources for all K-8 Students
• Plans for 2020-2021
As we plan for the coming school year, we are approaching the work with tremendous care and with children at the heart of every decision. We are all eager to resume in-person instruction; yet, we recognize that we can only do so with the health and safety of our students and staff as a top priority. During the summer, we will continue our efforts to plan for the coming year and ensure you remain updated on the news from the schools. Please watch your inbox as we will send news, brief surveys, and learning updates to District 35 parents every other week during June and July.
We are so grateful for the many ways we have worked together to support our students during this unprecedented time. The generous spirit of our community has truly made a positive difference during these last few months. Thank you!
Take care and be safe as a family,
