The only summer slide we want students to enjoy each summer is the one found at the playground! Help your child avoid the dreaded "summer slide" by intentionally planning activities to keep their brains engaged. They worked hard all school year and you don't want them to lose their newly gained knowledge and skills. 

Here are some easy tips to help your child retain their learning.
