Prevent Summer Brain Drain & Support Your PTO!
Many families feel that summer vacation translates to a break from academics. Here is food for thought as you review your summer plans:
Research spanning 100 years shows that students typically score lower on standardized tests at the end of summer vacation than they do on the same tests at the beginning of the summer.
Most students lose about two months of grade level equivalency in mathematical computation skills over the summer months. Low- income students also lose more than two months in reading achievement, despite the fact that their middle-class peers make slight gains (Cooper, 1996).
ACE Tutoring supports the schools in our community by donating a portion of summer camp tuition to school PTAs and Foundations. Check out http://www.smusd.org/domain/1003 for more info. about ACE Tutoring-SEMS PTO Summer Fundraiser.
