Warwick, RI — The 2015-16 school year starts Sept. 2 in Warwick, so help your kids get a jump on their summer assignments using the following links to the Warwick School Department.

All students in grades 1 through 12 have summer assignments in reading and math to complete before the first day — here’s how to find all of them:


Kindergarten students have a readiness checklist to complete. Check with your child’s school for more information.

Students going into grade 1 are required to read [or listen to someone read] one fiction and one nonfiction book, and complete two reading activities [worksheet here], which count as two extra credit homework grades and go toward first-quarter incentives.

Incoming 2nd graders also have one fiction and one nonfiction book to read, plus the assignment to complete the reading activities [find activity worksheet here].

The attached worksheet has pages of suggestions for grades 1 and 2, which you can find at the Warwick Public Library — but note: there is no mandatory book title list. So, use the included book lists as guides to what is considered appropriate reading level for your child.

Other important requirements: Books must be approved by parent/guardian, meet the student’s reading level, and be a new book that the student has not read before.

Use the Ocean State Libraries online catalog to search and reserve titles.

Warwick hosts four library branches where pick-up is available and you can sign the kids up for a library card, passport to a million lands. Schedules vary.

Reading assignments for grades 1 and 2 are due by Sept. 11, 2015.


These assignments are required by Sept. 8, according to a letter from Mathematics and Science Coordinator Ryan Mullen on summer assignments for grades 1 to 9.

Incoming first- and second-graders have a BINGO-style game board to complete, guided by exercises on the district’s IXL Math website. Parents need a username and password to access the site — call (401) 734-3219 x343 or email [email protected]
