Avoid Summer Slide

Summer slide is the loss of academic skills that occurs during the summer as a result of not receiving daily practice. Research by the RAND Corporation, McCombs and colleagues (2011) highlighted that “elementary students' performance falls by about a month during the summer.” (Resource quoted: “This is Your Brain on Summer," NY Times). Teachers often find that it can take three to six weeks for students’ “school brains” to re-engage after a long summer. To fight “summer slide” at AWS we are providing a math resource and a summer reading challenge.
