At Vaughan, we believe reading and using math is essential to
student success in school. We know that working on these skills
over the summer helps students to retain information learned
over the school year. In order to help your child with this, we
have provided the information below to assist you.
All students will receive a postcard with
information about a new student resource, Cobb Summer Link.
Cobb Summer Link incorporates both
digital and print resources to extend learning opportunities to
families of K-5 students through the summer. Summer Link focuses
on math learning guides for each grade level and independent
reading learning guides specific to students’ current reading
Families can access digital resources
associated with the math and literacy learning guides through
the Summer Link webpage: http://www.cobbk12.org/cobblink/.
