Keep the Skills Sharp!

Research shows that students who do not read over the summer can lose up to 2 reading levels. Please encourage your child to read regularly throughout the summer. You can have your own family book club or challenge each other to see who can read for the most minutes. Make it fun by reading high interest books.
