Don’t get caught on the summer slide during vacation. The summer slide is is a decline in reading ability and other academic skills that can occur over the summer months when school isn't in session. Numerous studies show that kids who don't read during summer vacation actually slip in reading ability by the time the new school year rolls around.
And so in an effort to combat the summer slide, we have put together summer reading packets for all of our English classes and some of our AP courses. Please go to this link to access the Summer Reading folders for each of the classes that have summer reading this summer.
Make sure that you are keeping mind exercised this summer. Read a book for fun, attend summer learning experiences. Just don’t spend the summer without doing anything, because the slide will then affect you.
