### Summer Packet Information

Dear Students:

North Hunterdon High School and Voorhees High School Math teachers have created a summer math packet to practice and enhance your understanding of mathematics.

Students are encouraged to complete the summer math packets that correspond to their high school math placement level (CP, Adv, Honors, AP) and designated course. In order to alleviate the stress for your child this summer, this packet will not be counted as a test or quiz grade for the first marking period as in previous years. This packet will be counted as a minimal impact grade for the 1st marking period of the school year. Teachers recommend that students attempt the packet in order to establish an understanding of what concepts students may need further instruction on this fall. The packets are due on the first day of school.

The Mathematics Department considers this summer packet an important part in academic achievement and encourages you to take it seriously. The packets for all math classes can be found on the North Hunterdon Math webpage (http://www.nhvweb.net/nhhs/math/) and the Voorhees Math webpage (http://www.nhvweb.net/vhs/math/).

We wish you a safe and enjoyable summer, and we look forward to continuing our tradition of academic excellence.

Sincerely,

Stacy Ditze

North Hunterdon High School Assistant Principal

and

Jessica Cantagallo-Rohm

Voorhees High School Assistant Principal
