THE EPIDEMIC: SUMMER LEARNING LOSS
Help fight the effects of "Summer Brain Drain" aka "Summer Learning Loss". Without structured and supervised activities throughout the eight weeks of summer vacation, many children loose months of knowledge when they return back to school in September. This is a time when children should be getting ahead, not falling behind. Summer learning programs have been shown to raise math and reading performance, increase attendance, reduce dropout rates, decrease involvement in crime, improve behavior at school and heighten interest in learning.
On Tuesday, April 21, 2015 we helped combat "Summer Learning Loss". Together we ensured 100 children were supported with one week of summer camp.
