Summer Reading Parent Information

Children acquire new skills throughout the school year, but they can lose ground if learning stops during the summer break. Fortunately, learning never has to stop.  Research has proven that the best way for students to become better readers is to read!  

Children who read throughout the summer gain skills and develop a better understanding of language and the world around them.  When children do not read over the summer months, they lose reading performance and fall victim to summer slide. Summer slide is when students regress one or more reading levels.  

Reading over the summer significantly makes a difference to your child’s learning.  Please encourage your child to experience the joy of reading, the doorway to all other learning!
