Summer Reading - Avoid the Summer Slide!

Summer slide is the loss of academic achievement children made during the school year. Research proves that when children do not read over the summer months, they lose reading performance and fall victim to summer slide.  

Fortunately, learning never has to stop. The best way for children to improve their learning is by reading. Children who read throughout the summer gain skills and  develop a better understanding of language and the world around them. Please encourage your child to experience the joy of reading during the summer break.

Reading is the doorway to all other learning!

Scholastic Education suggests five ways to help your child avoid summer slide. Read the attached document for great tips and resources and check out the Public Library Summer program.
