Strive for 5 this Summer!

Did you know that all it takes to keep your child on track for school in the fall is to READ 5 BOOKS over the summer? 

What is the Summer Slide? Kids who don’t read over the summer fall behind their peers when school starts up again, and the effects of the Summer Slide can last a lifetime! Reading 5 books during the summer can help prevent low reading scores in the fall! With this in mind, we designed our Summer Reading Program to help you turn the summer slide into a bridge to a successful new school year!
