GROTON — Help your students maintain their academic skills over the summer months and support GDSTEM at the same time with the Summer Skills Sharpener fundraiser.

Summer Skills Sharpeners are high-impact review workbooks for math (pre-K through grade 12), language arts (Pre-K through grade 8/HS prep), and Spanish or French review (MS/HS).

Last year, GDSTEM sold more than 300 workbooks to district families, and we’re hoping for another great year. Each workbook is offered at the special price of $17, which is $2 off the cover price. The publisher donates $1-$2 from every book sold to GDSTEM.

The money is used by our all-volunteer organization to further our mission promoting science, technology, engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) education in the Groton and Dunstable communities. This makes for a true win-win deal.

For more information about the Summer Skills series, including a grade-level overview and sample pages, visit Look for order forms going home with students in elementary- and middle-school backpacks in early May, or print a form at

All orders will be due by May 23 and the workbooks will be distributed by mid-June. Thank you to all those who took part in last year’s workbook order and for making it a huge success.
