    WHY IS SUMMER LITERACY IMPORTANT?

    “Research tells us that children and teens who don’t read and write outside of school, especially during long breaks such as summer vacation, face a big loss in their literacy growth compared to those who do continue learning all year long. This means the summer months and other breaks from school offer wonderful opportunities for families, caregivers, and out-of-school educators to help improve reading and writing.” ~NCTE

     

    WHAT CAN FAMILIES DO TO HELP?

    The English language arts teachers at W.A. Perry Middle want to ensure that all of our students reach their maximum potential in life. Literacy does play a large part in each student’s ability to find this success; therefore, in an effort to prevent any loss in literacy growth during the summer break, we strongly encourage families to continue learning into the summer months by reading and writing together.
