Summer slide? Not if we can help it! Just like any other sport or skill that you want to master, the only way to get better at reading is to practice. According to experts, kids who read during the summer gain reading competence, while those who do not often slide backward. Instead of losing knowledge and ability during the summer months, kids who participate in reading programs actually show gains.
 So ready… set...GO!  Exercise your body and your brain - sign up for the summer reading program!
