Cahoots is an 8-week summer correspondence program designed to reduce summer learning loss with an engaging, reflective approach to learning. Participants complete their work at their own pace at home. Youth who follow the schedule and complete all weekly correspondence will receive a reward in August. *New this summer - all books will be mailed to your home, not delivered to the school. Please make sure your address is current. 

How the Cahoots program works:

  • Workbooks will be mailed to registered families in early June. Books will be mailed to the address provided via online registration. 
  • Program weeks are June 26th-August 14th. Youth complete one lesson in their workbook per week. Lessons are approximately 20 questions long.
  • Families or youth check their own answers online (answer packets can be mailed by request).
  • After completing each lesson, youth complete one of the reflection worksheets and mail it to Cahoots c/o Justice Page School, 1 W 49th St, Minneapolis MN 55419.
  • Reflection sheets are designed to give youth a chance to apply their skills through open-ended questions. Youth are paired with a Reflection Buddy who sends responses for each lesson. 
  • Youth who are on track to complete all 8 reflections qualify to receive a reward in August. 
  • Enroll in the grade your student will be going into Fall 2020.
