Summer Reading
Summer Reading is a great way to connect with other readers and read what you want at your own pace. Studies show that access to book during the summer prevents a drastic loss in reading skill. Encourage your students to participate in fun, free activities at their local library and online at www.summerreading.org.

Common Core Standards 
Find tips and resources to share with parents to help them understand the Common Core Standards and how to support their child's learning.
