Join us in our 2022 Pierce Summer Reading Challenge! Let’s see if the Pierce School, grades K-8, can read 10,000 books this summer! We will be collecting the reading logs during the first weeks of school next year and using them to calculate how many books each class, each grade, and the whole school have read this summer.
All Pierce students in grades K-8 should read as much as they can this summer; however they are required to read at least three books: one fiction, one nonfiction, and one of their choice.

As part of Pierce’s continuing efforts to focus on math, we are once again offering students in grades Kindergarten through sixth an opportunity to continue working on their math knowledge and skills over the summer, through the summer math calendar. Brookline’s summer math calendar has been updated, once again, to include a variety of websites, apps and activities. We hope you enjoy the activities, extend them, create new ones, and have fun!
