Summer Learning Guide
At Grandview, our goal is to promote an intrinsic love of learning, but every student and family differs regarding what works at home to inspire the learner. Many families appreciate assigned mandatory reading, math practice and writing assignments because those tools provide the desired structure for their family. Other families prefer a more ‘free range’ parenting style and seek to create conditions for the learner to practice on his or her own. Grandview has set guidelines that you can administer as you see best fit for your family.
School Supply Lists
Technology Requirements for Grades 4 - 12
Students in Grades 4 & 5 are required to bring a Chromebook or similar small, portable device to school daily. Students in Grades 6-12 are required to bring a Chromebook or laptop to school daily. Laptops (or netbooks) are used extensively during the school day for research, collaboration, and communication, and students are responsible for bringing a fully charged and operational device to school each day. Students are encouraged to bring their chargers with them to school to be available as needed.
All student laptops (or netbooks) should have a virus protection program installed. A virus protection program protects the student's laptop as well as the school's network from malicious and potentially damaging software. Grandview operates on a wireless network so your laptop (or netbook) must be wi-fi ready.
Grandview is a “Google Apps” school, so each student will be provided with a “grandviewprep.org” account which will be used for all school related work, email messages, etc. Students will be expected to work collaboratively utilizing the Google Apps including Mail, Drive, etc.
