Summer 2019 Academic Enrichment Opportunities

At TJHSST we have a schoolwide focus to be mindful of student workload and stress. When we start the year with reduced stress, we set a positive tone for learning.

Therefore, TJHSST is now a leader in FCPS with how we have re-envisioned summer assignments. Effective this summer, teachers will not give required assignments over the summer. The opportunities presented are optional.

We admire our students’ initiative and intrinsic motivation and believe they will respond to teachers posting academic enrichment opportunities to keep skills fresh or otherwise feel ready for the new year.

Students will NOT be

  • required to turn in any of the suggested enrichment opportunities
  • asked to teach themselves new content
  • expected to take a test for a grade based on these enrichment suggestions
