It's out there, just waiting for many children each summer and often parents don't even realize it's happening until it's too late!  What is it? It's called the summer slide and it describes what happens when young minds sit idle for three months.  
Avoid summer slide by having your child read regularly throughout the summer.  An easy way to accomplish this is by signing up your child for our Summer Reading program.

SUMMER READING

The official start to the Summer Reading program begins with our Kickoff Party on Thursday, June 25th.
