School is winding down…what to do to avoid "brain drain"?

Studies show that during summer months students lose up to 30% of what they've learned during the school year!  So, how can you keep your kids learning over the summer? Here are a few ideas.

·Visit a library. Find some books with topics that interest your child so that they are really engaged in reading.

·Visit local museums, zoos and historical sites. Help your child learn about history and the world they live in.

·Enroll in summer tutoring programs. For children that are struggling academically, summer can be the perfect time to address it with a customized tutoring program. 

· Buy mind engaging games for your children and their friends to play, simple card games make for a fun afternoon activity. They are easy to learn and great for including large groups of children.
