 Summer Review Books!

We have a dynamic Math program for grades 1-8, with the additions of Pre-Algebra, Algebra and High School Review, designed to help students maintain and enhance their math skills throughout the summer months.


The Summer Skills Sharpener Program contains 30 pages of mixed mathematics skills.  It is designed as a quick refresher of basic skills that were already taught during the preceding academic year.  It has been suggested that a student should use the Summer Skills Sharpener Program for the grade most recently completed.

 The Troy School District Math Coordinator, has reviewed many math materials available for summer use and recommends this as an excellent way to help reinforce the concepts and strategies that have been taught.  This program is also the one most recommended by our Bemis Teachers.

If you are interested in purchasing any of these excellent programs for your child, please fill out the attached order form and we will process it for you. Each book costs $20.00, or you can purchase it directly from the company for $19.00 plus shipping and handling (at least $3.80). The booklets will be shipped to Bemis by the first week in June.  If you want to preview the materials before ordering, we recommend that you view the materials online at  There you will find curriculum overviews and three sample lessons from each book.

From The Bemis Round Table

Round Table will be organizing a collection for Project Night Night from now through next Friday (March 9th). Project Night Night is a fabulous organization that provides gift bags for homeless children all across Michigan. Each bag should include one stuffed animal, one blanket and one book. We are looking forward to providing some cozy comfort to homeless children. Some classes have decided to bring in $1 each and have the teacher use that money to purchase items for the bag. Our goal is one bag per classroom. However, we will always accept more. Here is the link to Project Night Night, if you'd like some more information about the organization:
