Promoting Learning Experiences and Healthy Living During the Summer

Research conclusively demonstrates that students lose ground academically when they are out of school for the summer. The problem particularly affects low-income students who on average lose more than two months in reading achievement.

To combat learning loss, the Summer Learning Team works with museums, libraries, schools, local food and wellness programs, and others to give children numerous opportunities to learn throughout the summer.

Designed for Pre-K to fifth grade students, these connected-learning activities are compiled in a family-friendly guide and can be done by children independently or with their families. The guides are updated and distributed annually to K-3+ elementary schools and partner sites. The activities focus on math, reading, and science.
