Summer Reading

Summer vacation means more than just fun in the sun. When students head out of the classroom and take a break from the books, they risk serious summer learning loss that can negatively impact long-term academic achievement. See our stop summer slide flyer and learn about summer slide by the numbers. Avoid summer slide and encourage summer reading today!
