Studies indicate that a typical elementary student's academic achievement declines approximately two months over the summer. Additionally, summer learning loss is cumulative and over time can contribute to a student's potential success. This year, we are encouraging our Griffins, 5K to rising 5th grade, to join us in our fight against the "Summer Slide." #GriffinPride #WholeChild
Over the next several weeks, you will find Sterling School's Sweet Summer Reading Chances information with your child's mailed report card, on our school's webpage, Facebook page, and in forthcoming summer editions of the Weekly Griffin. The Sweet Summer Reading Chances will begin at dismissal on Wednesday, June 5th. With this summer learning experience, students will have the opportunity to win exciting prizes and participate in a start-of-year celebration! There are several ways to participate: READO, Camp Wonderopolis, and the Greenville Library Summer Reading Program. To learn more information, see the following flyer (CLICK HERE!).
