GRASP

GRASP

The GRASP program has concluded for Summer 2018!  Thank you to all who participated.  See you again next Summer.

GRASP is a nine week correspondence program for grades K - 8, that helps students maintain reading and math skills while they are on summer vacation.  Each lesson is constructed to reinforce or reteach typical basic skills generally found in most curricula at a particular grade level.

  • One lesson per subject is completed each week for nine weeks.
  • Each lesson should take approximately  one hour per week to complete.
  • Completed lessons are mailed to a scoring center in the envelopes provided.  The lessons are scored, results recorded and returned to the student.
  • Children successfully completing at least 7 lessons (70% accuracy) are awarded a certificate.  Those successfully completing all 9 lessons will receive a medal, soon after Labor Day.
  • Instruction sheets found in each packet provide all the necessary information to complete each lesson.
  • Children attending elementary grades at Bloomington Public Schools will have materials sent home with them the last week of school.  
A new online version of the correspondence program is available for grades 4 - 8 in which students will receive immediate feedback for their completed lessons.
