2020 SUMMER SLUMP SOLUTIONS
June 30, 2020 at 7pm
We know that the pandemic has affected our students’ academic progress. We also know that students who don’t practice the skills they have learned in school far behind known as the Summer Slump.
Therefore, we have gathered education professionals, and leaders of organizations, to give parents tips on how to best support their children during the summer as well as information on summer program offerings.
There will be a Q&A section for parents to ask questions, and get real answers. Parents will walk away with options and guidance for how to support their children by some of our city's top educators.
