The Summer Academic Sprint Results Are In!

Monday, August 15, 2016 -- Shannon LaBree

Summer is coming to an end which means our Edmentum Summer Academic Sprints featuring Study Island have officially closed. We are thoroughly impressed with how many students participated in this summer’s challenge, and want to thank everyone who took time out of their summer break to earn those Blue Ribbons! While summer break is often about swimming parties, late nights, sleeping in, and no school, it’s wonderful to see so many schools and students prioritize summer learning. Now, without further ado, we’re excited to share some results and highlights!
