A note from Mrs. Cannata Assistant Principal
It is hard to believe that we are
just about 10 days away from the final day of school! Summer vacation is just
around the corner and can serve as an extra time of learning! There are many
temptations for students to spend hours watching television or playing video
games, but with a little planning and teamwork, the summer can be easily
transformed into a time to grow and stretch your child’s mind, explore new
hobbies, learn about responsibility and build on skills learned during the
Teachers spend an average of four
to eight weeks every fall reviewing and re-teaching material that students have
forgotten during the summer break. Many students lose the equivalent of one to
two months of reading and math skills during the summer, and do not score as
well on standardized tests as students who continue to learn during the summer.
The effect is cumulative: Each summer a student isn’t learning, adds up and can
have a long-term impact on overall performance in school.
