10 Tips for Making Summer a Promising Season of Learning

Your child worked hard all school year to perform at their best. But according to the National Summer Learning Association, when kids take an absolute break from education during the summer months – whether by circumstance or by design – they lose about two months’ worth of grade-level equivalency in math skills and more than two months’ worth of reading achievement. With all the potential excitement over field trips to amusement and waterparks, don’t let your child ride the slippery slide of taking too much of a mental break during summer.
