PREVENTING THE SUMMER SLIDE: R2 Parent Institute for Learning and Engagement

5/1/2017



As summer break approaches, educators want to make sure students focus on more than relaxing and beating the heat. They encourage parents to help students stay hydrated and keep brains active to help prevent what’s called the “summer slide.” Summer slide or summer learning loss is the tendency for students to lose some of the achievement gains they made during the previous school year.

Richland Two is hosting the R2 Parent Institute for Learning and Engagement to offer strategies and tips to help counteract summer learning loss. Join us on Wednesday, May 24, at the Richland Two Institute of Innovation (R2i2), located at 763 Fashion Drive across from Belk in the Village at Sandhill.
 
“Keeping young minds stimulated and actively engaged is vital to retaining knowledge gained throughout the school year,” said Kelli Johnson, Director of Parent and Family Education.
 
Participants can register for a maximum of two sessions that will cover various topics, including summer learning loss, special education, drug and alcohol prevention, and transitioning from elementary to middle and middle to high school. Seating is limited. Registration will begin at 5 p.m. for participants who will attend sessions I and II.  Registration will begin at 6 pm for those who will attend Session II only. This information is outlined in SCHED. Child care will be provided for students in grades Pre-K through 5.
 
These slots will go quickly.
