our wall of students’ summer goals
Kumon’s annual Level Up Contest challenges, but also encourages students to keep up their hard work over the summer months. Kumon students are asked to set an achievable goal for themselves, a level that they want to reach by the end of summer, and work towards it from the beginning of July to the end of September.
This year, we would like to celebrate the achievement of 4 of the students at our centre.

The centre will be closed from December 24th to January 2nd.
Emails and phone calls sent during that time will be replied to in January.
Students will receive a homework list on their last day of class so that they can keep up with their daily assignments.
Please see the friendly Kumon staff if you have any questions.

A special word of congratulations to our G by 5 stars!
First Avenue Kumon Students Justin, Carl, Queenie and Boya all achieved G by 5 star status.
What is G by 5? G by 5 is a special acknowledgement from Kumon North America to our students who have persevered to reach the G level of Kumon study before advancing to the 6th grade at school.
What’s covered in the G level? Topics such as working with positive and negative numbers and working with algebra. Typically these topics are covered in high school.
This is a fantastic achievement by Justin, Carl, Queenie and Boya who join other G by 5 stars of our centre, Julie and Caroline. Our students and their parents deserve praise for their hard work and efforts!
