Woohoo! School is almost out for the summer so we can all take a break and sleep in late, splash around the pool, eat popsicles, and go to the movies! Learning can stop now! Right? Wrong! 



 Summer time provides the BEST opportunity students have to enrich their academic skills if they desire to get ahead before school begins again or catch up in skills if they ended the school year below average in an area. During the summer, because school has ended and teachers are not moving through any additional curriculum, students have the opportunity to gain ground in their academics and with their school’s expectations. Whereas, during the school year if students fall behind, they must catch up with what they have missed AND keep up with what is being taught on a day-by-day basis BOTH at the same time. This is very difficult to do and can be extremely stressful! So, mom and dad, give the students in your family the opportunity to do what they can not easily do during the school year, which is to CATCH UP or MOVE AHEAD in their academics and solve their STUDY SKILL weaknesses this summer! 

Remember, SUMMER is the most ideal time for students to get a JUMP START on the next school year! I hope your children have a great summer sleeping in late, splashing around the pool, eating popsicles, watching movies, AND participating in SUMMER LEARNING!!
