# No Summer Slide 2016

Wheeeee......  
 
#NoSummerSlide 
 
What is summer slide?  Summer slide is when students regress in their learning from the time school is out until the next school year.  Reading, writing, listening to stories, and practicing math can lessen the chance of summer slide.  Below are some resources that will help students retain what they have learned.

Focus School

Our school qualifies again this year for school-wide Title I Funding and services. Our Title I plan allows us to employ tutors that help serve students in grades K-5. These tutors will be assisting with Direct Instruction, Guided Reading, and interventions. Our Title I Funds are also used to employ three lead teachers, three character coaches, three interventionists, and to provide staff development training, and sponsor parent involvement activities. In addition, as a parent of a student in a Title I school, you may request information regarding the professional qualifications of your child's teacher. We are recognized as a focus school and are working to close the achievement gap among student subgroups.
