PRINCIPAL'S SUMMER CHALLENGE 

It’s very simple . . . purchase the correct level of the Summer Brain Quest or Summer Bridge series workbook recommended below. 
Entering Grades 1-6 – Summer Brain Quest 
Entering Grades K and 7-8 – Summer Bridge Activities 
(For example, if your child is finishing 3rd and going into 4th grade, you would purchase the workbook for that transition.)
These summer workbooks are available at your local bookstore, Melbourne Barnes & Noble or Amazon.com and cost approximately $9 - $10 each. Students who complete the entire workbook and turn it in at the beginning of the school year Fall 2020 will be invited to a party hosted by Coastal Community School to celebrate the success of those students! 

Believe us, it will be FUN!
