Winter Break Packets

The winter packets are designed to reinforce learning and can be helpful to our students as they prepare for upcoming assessments.  Although the packets are optional,  we  ask that you encourage your child(ren) to complete them while on winter break.  Please note that teachers may assign the winter packets for extra credit, if the child wishes to participate.  The winter break packets are available online for all interested families. The answer keys will be posted online after January 3, 2017. Please use the link below to access the winter packet for your child(ren) or access the link via our school’s website.   http://www.pgcps.org/winterbreak/
