Summer Learning

Mokena School District 159  has partnered with the Illinois Association of School Administrators and Renaissance Learning as part of the “Keep Illinois Learning” campaign.  This initiative supports school districts in giving students access to summertime online learning practice programs.  

Starting June 1st, all rising 1st-8th grade students will have access to the Freckle Math and ELA programs from home.  Freckle Math and ELA are adaptive practice programs that are designed to find a student's “just right” learning level and provide independent online activities aligned to Illinois Learning Standards.

When logging in for the first time, students will take a brief assessment that will give each student a starting point in the program.  As students answer questions correctly or incorrectly, the program will continuously adapt to meet the needs of each student. 

To begin using the Freckle program, please visit the link to the right. Once on the site click "I'm a Student".  From there, students will be prompted to enter a username and password.  Each student’s username is his/her Mokena student ID number and the password is the same as his/her Google account password that is used throughout the school year. 

If your child is unsure of this username and password, parents can find it by logging into their Skyward Family Account, choosing the “Report Card” option on the left hand side of the screen, and clicking the “Freckle Account Information” report.

We highly encourage each student to take part in this summertime learning opportunity at home.  We will be reviewing student participation at the end of the summer and will celebrate participating students when we return in August.

If you have any questions about the program throughout the summer, please don’t hesitate to reach out to Kristin Johnson, Assistant Superintendent, by email at
