BY MELISSA PITYK / JUNE 10, 2019
A long summer break is a great time for students to reset and take time away from studying but watch out for Summer Slide. Research shows that summer can take a real toll on your student’s knowledge and skills. Students who read less during the summer can lose up to three months of reading progress and that loss has a cumulative, long-term effect.
Consider summer as an exciting opportunity to continue learning. Rather than experiencing Summer Slide, your kids can take a summer leap — enjoying countless opportunities to make new discoveries. Visit any branch of the Lexington County Public Library to find books for all interests and skill levels.
