What is Summer Slide? 
Summer Slide is when students lose up to 2 months of the learning that happened during the school year. Summer Slide happens when students do not engage in reading and math activities over the summer months when most children are not attending school.

Summer Thrive is when students continue to progress in their learning or maintain their learning because they practice reading and math over the summer. These children are exposed to learning experiences that they may not have had during the school year, such as visits to museums or zoos. Our goal is to help provide you with materials that can support summer learning for reading and math. 

We are so excited to have been able to provide our students with materials for summer learning! The students were selected based upon those the receive services from one of our Reading or Math Specialists. Each student who had parent approval received books on their reading level and a summer math notebook with manipulatives to play math games. Part of this program requires that parents attend our Summer Thrive meeting. Our meeting was Thursday, May 26th at 5:30pm.


Below are links to the Powerpoint presentation we used in the meeting. Any student in K, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, or 5th grade is welcome to go to the Files and Documents page and print the Summer Math Books and use the links and videos below.  You may also visit Mrs. Palmer's Class Page and Mrs. Farrell's Class Page for even more resources. Additionally, the PWCS Title I Office has created a Summer Thrive page that includes information about academics for elementary, middle and high school. There is also important information about nutrition, exercise and bicycle safety. Check it out!

Should you have any questions, feel free to contact Caden Palmer at [email protected] for math related questions or Kathy Farrell at [email protected] for reading related questions.

Happy Learning!
