LETTER: Summer Slide: It’s not all fun and games!

Summer Slide is not a new game or attraction. It is the term used to refer to the amount of academic growth that students usually lose during the Summer months.
Research shows if students do not continue to read during the summer, the growth they made during the school year can be lost in as less as 8 weeks. 
This can be even more significant for lower income students who may not be involved in any other enrichment activities throughout the summer.
