Strive for 5! What does our new principal do during the summer?
Summer Reading Matters!
If your family is anything like ours, summer is busy! Between work, camps, and fun, it’s easy to forget about school until September!
But did you know, summer is a critical time to keep reading? One study I read recently said reading just five books in the summer can defend against one of our biggest enemies as Explorers – the summer slide! Summer slide, or learning loss, refers to the loss of skills and knowledge as students fall out of “practice” in the summer.
Reading for just a few minutes a day – and getting those five books in over the summer – can help keep minds busy and skills sharp to pick up right were learning left off in the spring!
So…will you join me in “Strive for 5” this summer? Even if you haven’t read anything yet – it’s not too late! Grab a book and get started today! Our local library has a great summer reading program – and free books! – for those who choose to participate. It’s free – and fun! In case you can’t tell from our tee shirts – we sure enjoyed the program this year!
Turn in your “Strive for 5” form to me when you get back to school – available here or in the office – and I’ll trade you for a super cool new bookmark for your next book – whether it be your 6th or 60th!
