Say No to the Summer Slide
Now that school is out, most kids are thinking about sleeping in, having some extra TV time, riding their bikes, playing with friends, maybe going to a summer camp or two and just overall taking a break from the daily routine of school.
But just because school is out doesn't mean the learning has to stop. In fact, a well-researched phenomenon called the "summer slide" can cause kids to lose up to two months of learning if they don't stay educationally active during the summer break.
Thanks to the efforts of a multitude of local organizations including Tahoe Truckee Reads, the Tahoe Truckee Unified School District, the Boys & Girls Club, our public libraries and many others, there are a number of educationally-based summer programs available to local kids this summer at minimal to no cost.
Information about special events, online reading programs, reading lists and more details about the many summer reading programs available throughout the Tahoe/Truckee area can be found at www.tahoetruckeereads.org.
