Pick up a book!
Why is summer reading so important?
Many students feel that summer is a time to kick back and not think about anything school related. This is a huge mistake! Students who don't read over the summer tend to lose some of what they learned the previous school year. This is especially critical for those students who are already reading below their grade level. Use the summer to improve your reading skills to help you keep up with your peers in class.
