This is the image for the news article titled Get Ready, Set, Read!As many of you are planning for your summer activities for your children, we want you to remember to encourage your children to read now and over the summer break!  
Many children forget what they’ve learned during the school year while on summer break. This “achievement loss” is also known as the summer slide. Keeping your kids’ engaged with reading over the summer months will help maintain their academic edge and reduce the summer slide. Children who do not read over the summer could potentially lose more than 2 months of reading achievement and unfortunately summer reading loss is cumulative.
