Super Scholar

March 17, 2016 | Posted by krysta-mo

Super Scholar is an incentive for our grammar students to learn all of the memory work.  Awards will be given to those who are have successfully memorized each subject area as well as those in each subject area. They can choose all or one or more to work toward. Parents will work with their student at home and confirm they are ready to be evaluated at year’s end. A Director will quiz the student with just the parent present. (Parents are there for support and witness but must remain quiet.) The Director will randomly quiz the child with the beginning portion of the memory work or asking about a topic such as “Tell me about the area of a rectangle.” and the student will respond, “The area of a rectangle equals length times width.” or, “Finish this statement: The Civil Rights movement started in” and the child will respond with the entire history statement.​ Awards will be given out at our end-of-year showcase.

Testing this year will be available after class on April 20 or April 27.  Certificates will be given for all levels of acheivement, medals and possibly a T-shirt will be awarded to scholars that achieve super scholar. Choose one or more to work toward.
