Senior Math & Physics Summer Seminars 2017

Dear Seniors and Parents:

At Kellenberg Memorial we have established an academic program that includes four full years of study in all subject areas. Our goal is to provide a liberal arts education that prepares each student for higher academic pursuits. The seniors have worked throughout their years at Kellenberg Memorial to build up a momentum for entering college. We have one more opportunity to extend to the seniors to assist in their successful transition to college.

Beginning on Monday, May 22, 2017, and continuing until Thursday, June 15, 2017, the Math and Science departments will offer seminars in Statistics, Introduction to Calculus and Physics. The purpose of the seminars is to give the students extensive introductory exposure to college level courses and reduce the anxiety with which many students venture into these courses. The seminars will be particularly valuable to those students whose future studies will include Calculus and/or Physics as part of their collegiate program. Primarily students who plan on studying in the engineering, medical, pharmaceutical, health related and science related fields will find these seminars to be essential as they begin their respective college level programs. Many graduates who have participated in these seminars have mentioned how valuable they are. The Introduction to Calculus Seminar is intended for those Seniors who took Pre-Calculus this year as Seniors and the Statistics Seminar is intended for those who took the Introduction to Calculus or Trigonometry classes as Seniors.

The seminars will meet from 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. on alternating days ( the Math Seminars meet on Mondays and Wednesdays; Physics meets on Tuesdays and Thursdays ) from Monday, May 22 until Thursday, June 15. During the week of March 20 – 24, 2017, the Seniors will receive a presentation in their science and math classes by their classroom teachers concerning these seminars. Seniors who wish to take advantage of this program will have the opportunity to register for it through their current Math and Science classes during this week with the deadline for registration being Friday, April 28, 2017. The students will be given a registration form which they will bring home for parental permission and signature. Participants may elect to enroll in one, or both subject areas. The seminars are free of charge.

The advertisement flyer is attached here as well. Please feel free to contact my office should you have any questions concerning participation in these seminars.

Sincerely,

Mr. Kenneth J. Conrade
Assistant Principal for Academics
