Studies have shown that learners can lose up to 50% of learning during the summer vacation. Georgetown is challenging you and your child to “Keep On Learning With Mobymax” this summer as a way to prevent summer slide. Georgetown teachers selected MobyMax as the online curriculum for summer vacation and extra curricular in school learning.
This web-based program is computer or tablet ready. If you do not have internet connection this is a great program to access at your local library. MobyMax is tailored to your child’s individual needs.
We recommend that your child consistently use MobyMax each week in the core areas of reading and mathematics. If interesting, you can also choose to work on Language, Writing and Grammar — or practice your skills with assessments. Spending just a few minutes each day on Mobymax will help to reduce “summer slide” and keep your child’s learning skills fresh over the summer.
Our goals for students over the summer are:
- K Grade: 100 pts
- First Grade: 200 pts
- Second Grade: 300 pts
- Third Grade: 400 pts
- Fourth Grade: 500 pts
- Fifth Grade: 600 pts
To track the amount of points earned, click on the CONTEST button. This will list all the students in the school and the number of points each has earned.
If students reach or exceed their grade level goal they will earn a special treat with Mrs. Reagan and an additional recess time during the first week of school. Also, all students who reach or exceed goals will be entered in a drawing for an IPAD mini. This ipad mini is sponsored by our Parent Club — whom all our parents are members of! Membership begins when you donate to our FALL WALKATHON (details coming in late August).

Have a great summer…and keep on learning with MOBYMAX!
