    Currently in Grade K-8 GRASP is a 9 week correspondence program for Grades K-8 which helps students maintain reading and math skills while they are on summer vacation. It should take you and your child approximately one hour per week to complete each weekly lesson. We suggest parents order the grade level just completed. If there are extenuating circumstances, order the level that is appropriate for your child. Completed lessons are mailed to a scoring center where they are analyzed and then returned to you. Instruction sheets found in each packet provide all the necessary information. The enrollment fee is $35 for one subject, OR $60 for both. We also have an online version of GRASP for students in grades 4-8. Samples of workbooks are available online at www.grps.org/grasp. Please indicate the grade level for each subject you are purchasing when you register and if you will be ordering the book or online version. Orders must be received by April 15!
