CHS STEM Summer Assignments
In our efforts to best position students for success for their fall classes, we’ve created preparatory materials for them to review over the summer. The content is a review of material from their prior courses and/or an introduction to the beginning topics of their new course. Most assignments will not be factored into students fall grades but we have found students who spend time reviewing in the summer perform better during the school year. Please access information below.
