All Mater Dei students have required summer reading and required time working with IXL Math.


Students MUST login to or from the link

on the MD website for their logins to work.  ( IF YOU HAVE TROUBLE WITH YOUR LOGIN PLEASE CONTACT:

All students are required to complete at least eight hours of work in IXL Math.  Focus should be on skills that will sharpen their work for the coming academic year. A grade for IXL will be the first math grade of the year. 


Upper school students (grades 5 - 8) have two reading required books. No book reports are required; however, the students will be tested on these books in the first week of school. Because there will be testing on the books required, it might make sense to focus on IXL first and read the  books in August. 


Lower school students (grades 1 - 4) are required to read 2 books and turn in book reports for those books on the first day of school. You can download the book report form below:
