Summer Reading Challenge
Did you know research has shown that over the summer, most students lose 20%-30% of the academic gains they made over the previous school year? This learning loss only increased with the disruptions of Covid for our students.
Summer is a great opportunity to help our students stay on track or even get ahead. We are supporting our students by offering a Summer Reading Challenge with the opportunity to win prizes!
