Imagine Math is an online math tutoring program that can help students avoid “summer learning loss”. Students will work on a carefully selected set of topics designed to help them maintain the math skills that they gained during the school year. Using Imagine Math in the summer helps to prepare students for the topics they will see when the new school year begins.
Help your children maintain their math and problem-solving skills over the summer. HCPS is partnering with Imagine Learning to offer a web-based summer math program. Click here for more details. Parents must register their child by Fri., June 30. The tutorial website will be accessible, upon registration, from Monday, June 19, until Wednesday, Aug. 9. Register at this link.

We could not be more proud of 8th grader Tejas Muthusamy! He has taken Henrico Schools and Moody Middle School to new heights in the Scripps National Spelling Bee, finishing 6th in the nation this year, and earning a cash prize of $2,500! The way he’s handled the highs and lows of competition has been a lesson for all of us on sportsmanship, preparation, and professionalism. In his 3 years representing Moody Middle, he has grown up before our eyes, spelling and representing himself, his family, and his school with grace and honor, while growing from a young boy into a fine young man. The lessons he has learned in this unique competition will serve him well in the future as he meets the challenges of high school, higher education, and the future. Congratulations to Tejas on an amazing Bee journey!
