Mandatory 2021-22 Summer Assignments (ELA & Math)

The Bak MSOA Mandatory Summer Assignments are for students attending Bak MSOA for the 2021-22 school year (SY22). Because of the "short summer break", the summer assignments have either been reduced or eliminated. These assignments and requirements listed below are mandatory and students are responsible for the assigned work/knowledge/skills. Students will receive a grade for the summer assignment and/or have various assessments based on the requirements for each grade level. 
The assignment in English Language Arts (ELA) requires students to read a specific book and complete an assignment. The grade specific book will not only be assessed soon after the school year begins, but serves as a core text. These books can be found at your local library, online, or purchased at various locations. The math assignments require students to know, understand, and be able to do prerequisite math skills.

Bak Math Students: Please refer to the table below to see what math skills and knowledge you should have previously learned and mastered before entering your 2021-22 (SY22) math course. Students are responsible to know, understand, and be able to do the prerequisite skills for the course you are taking for the 2021-22 school year.  Below are skills that you have been taught going back to elementary school (third grade) and the courses you have already taken in Middle School.

You will be tested on these basic math facts soon after the school year begins. The Bak math teachers have provided resources for you to use to increase your skills and knowledge.
