Required Summer Mathematics

All Nashua Catholic students need to purchase a Summer Skills Math Sharpener workbook for use this summer. We are asking that all students complete at least 20 lessons in the Summer Math Skills Sharpener Workbooks. Your student receives their first test grade for math class in September by completing and submitting the workbook to their math teacher as advised. Directions on how to complete these lessons are listed later on this page.

Workbooks may be purchased online at:

The level for the workbook is determined by the level the students are entering math in August 2017.

Students will receive full credit (100%) if all 20 lessons are completed in the following manner:

  1. Calculators may NOT be used for any of these problems, unless the problem is labeled “calculator skill”.
  2. All calculations and “work” must be shown in the workbook in the space provided.
  3. As each worksheet is finished, parents use the answer key provided in the back of the workbook to correct the problems.
  4. Students then redo any problems until they are correct. Please include this work as well.

If you notice your child struggling to complete their sheets, please email Dean Winkelmann at to let us know about the difficulty so we may address it during the school year.
