Why Summer Learning?
Stay on Top of the Mountain!
Just like exercise keeps your muscles strong, summer learning keeps your brain strong.
Children who read and do math over the summer
-- stay on top of the mountain or climb even higher
-- are ready for the next grade
-- expand their vocabulary
-- gain new knowledge that helps them succeed
* Students who participated in Summer Learning will receive recognition in September.
Return Calendar/Bingo by Sept 7 for Gr. 1-4, Sept 14 for Gr. preK-K
