Sliding can be a blast - until you've got to climb back up to the top!
“Slide” refers to the loss of academic skills and knowledge that typically happens to students over summer break. This occurs across all subjects and for some, the backwards “slide” can be equivalent to an entire grade level. Studies show a little summer reading goes a long way toward success in the classroom. Visit library to prevent slide and have fun, too!
