Summer Work

Summer work has officially started! At the Cathedral we believe that summer is a crucial time to keep our students engaged in learning, to prevent the “summer slide." This summer slide can be avoided by ensuring that children are as engaged as possible in whatever they choose to read—just as long as they’re reading every day!

Below is the summer 2019 work, which must be completed by the first day of school. A few notes:

  • Please read and complete ALL documents under each grade level.
    • Exception: the student only needs to complete Xavier OR Drexel, if both are indicated. 
      • New students should complete the "Drexel" assignment, if Drexel and Xavier are both listed. If the student needs to be challenged more, he/she may complete the Xavier assignment. 
      • Students who were at Cathedral 2018-19 and were already in Drexel or Xavier should complete the same level for their incoming grade. 
        • For example, an incoming 5th grader who was in Drexel for 4th grade should complete the Drexel work listed under "Incoming 5th Grade."
  • "This year" refers to the 2019-20 school year.
  • We encourage everyone to obtain a library card this summer! Here's how to do so at Enoch Pratt Library (Baltimore City).
  • Want more ideas for books to read? Check out these Suggested Summer Reading Lists!
  • If you have questions, please contact one of the teachers for your child's incoming grade level. The teacher contact information is listed on each respective "About Summer Math Work" or "Summer Reading" link below.

Thank you!



Incoming Kindergarten and Pre-First (PF)

  • There is no assigned summer work that is to be handed in for grades K and PF, but we encourage reading with your child both at home with books and through environmental print to make reading fun and meaningful. If you are in need of book recommendations, we encourage visiting your local library!

During the School Year

Every class at the School of the Cathedral uses Google Classroom to create a robust, technologically-advanced classroom experience. Teachers post announcements, assignments, and questions on their Google Classroom site, and students complete and submit work directly in the class' site. 

Students and parents will have access to their child's Google Classroom site(s). For the initial invitation to your child's Google Classroom site, please contact your child's teacher. Once you have logged in once, you will be able to access all your child(ren)'s Google Classroom sites here
