Combatting the Summer Slide

School’s out, and it is time for both teachers and students to relax before preparing for next year. But even over summer break, students still need educational opportunities so they can return to school strong and ready to learn more. Unfortunately, not all students have the same academic opportunities available to them during the summer.

One of the most common causes of the achievement gap, or the differences in scores between disadvantaged and advantaged children, is summer learning loss (also known as the summer slide). Because at-risk students do not always have educational resources over the summer, they are particularly vulnerable to losing knowledge gained over the school year.

But when parents and educators team up, we can help prevent summer learning loss from affecting their students. Educational, fun enrichment activities throughout the summer are an important feature of the programs offered through Boys & Girls Clubs of St. Charles County.

Thanks to supporters like you we continue to offer a robust nine-week Summer Blast program. Each week members at both locations participate in hands-on learning, field trips, and guest speakers. Yesterday they attended Myseum, a children’s museum + science center + indoor playground, and had an amazing experience. Donors make this possible and we are grateful for the support.
