Choosing to GROW

Research tells us that young readers who don't continue to read and practice math skills over the summer are likely to lose crucial ground. One summer off can sometimes mean a whole school year of struggling academic performance.

On average, all students, regardless of socio-economic status, lose approximately 2.6 months of grade level equivalency in mathematical computation over the summer months.*
