Summer Slide

summerslide8Research suggests students who keep their reading skills “sharp” by reading during the summer maintain the reading progress made the previous school year, helping them to begin the next school year ready to continue making gains without the typical “summer slide” of skills. ┬áLast June we piloted the “Summer Slide” program with Pine Street Elementary’s first graders, giving each child 3 books to read during the summer. We are proud to be able to offer it to all Aroostook County first graders coming this June through a partnership with Katahdin Trust Company!
