Dear Parents and/or Guardian,
According to Johns Hopkins University Center for Summer Learning, children can lose 2-3 months of reading and math skills over the summer. It can take six weeks in the fall for students to make up for this loss, which educators call the Summer Slide.
In order to help stop the slide, St. Lucie Public Schools has put together an amazing website called Summer Slide Resourcesthat can be found on the district webpage. This page is to help keep your child/children on track for success during the summer months. There is an area on this website for VPK, K-5, 6-8, and 9-12 students. The resources include Reading, Math, Social Studies, Science, Civics, and much much more!
All resources can be found at: https://www.stlucie.k12.fl.us/seasonal/summer-slide/
Please join us in promoting the Summer Slideprogram and welcoming it into your home over the summer. Our Northport family appreciates your continued support for our students’ journey toward success and college/career readiness!
Enjoy the summer …..it will “Slide” your child towards SUCCESS!
