Summertastic Reading Pledge
June 1, 2015 - August 6, 2015
Take the United Way Summertastic Reading Pledge, and commit to read with a child in your life for 20 minutes (or more) a day during summer break.
Did you know that children can lose up to three months of academic progress over the summer? Studies show that without enrichment activities and practice over the summer, students naturally forget some of what they learned and return to school less prepared the following year.
But with your help, you’ll not only enjoy some quality time with the child in your life – you’ll also help them stay on track AND have a great summer of fun.
Take the Summertastic Reading Pledge for a fun and rewarding summer, and raise awareness of the importance of summer reading for strong families and children. You will help them avoid the “summer slide” and get a leg up for the upcoming school year.
