Out-of-School Time

National Summer Learning Week (July 15th-19th)

National Summer Learning Week is a celebration dedicated to elevating the importance of keeping kids learning, safe, and healthy every summer, ensuring they return to school ready to succeed in the year. Research shows that summer learning loss during elementary school accounts for two-thirds of the achievement gap in reading between low-income children and their middle-income peers by ninth grade, according to data from the National Summer Learning Association.

The Summer Slide

The "summer slide" is a learning loss that occurs in children after an extended period of out-of-school time. Making sure your child continues learning over the summer is no easy task, but the Lafayette-Oxford-University Early Learning Collaborative is here to help!

Remember to read to your child every day. This is one of the best things you can do to promote literacy, which will greatly help your child in all areas of academics. Also, please remember to have fun while spending time with your child. Trips to the library, park, grocery store, etc. can provide rich experiences for learning, so include these trips as much as you can. We hope you have a wonderful and safe summer!
