Dear Parents,

Many of you have asked about educational resources available for your child during the summer break.  Students at Kennesaw Elementary are familiar with Headsprout for reading and Dreambox for math.  Please click on the links below to learn more about each program.



Rising first and second graders have used these programs at school so they are familiar with logging in and working independently.  Headsprout and Dreambox are excellent programs that track individual progress and allow students to work at their own pace.  We hope these resources will be helpful for your child as it is important to maintain and improve reading and math skills over the break. 

Have a happy summer break!
