This program is the best thing to happen to my daughter and I am grateful she
has this oppertunity to keep learning throughout the summer. Ashley and the
whole staff that is involved make it fun for the kids. I have to fight my
daughter when we have to miss a day. I want to thank everyone who is involved
and made this available for my daughter.
As a public school teacher and a parent, there is a real way to fight the
"summer slide." Good parenting. Assign work and activities to your
kids. I've found that kids who read the KJV of the Bible, do much better
in English classes, especially their Shakespeare units. Math workbooks are out
there. Keep their brains running. Do things that keep them fit and build
responsibility. Work and service should be part of every teenager's life.
Books on tape are great when families are on road trips.
We use daily math worksheets, nothing incredibly tough, to keep up skills during
the summer. Plus reading a chapter in any book a day. Doing these things have
really helped our kids stay ready for the next school year.
