Students experience learning loss during the summer months when school is out, particularly in reading ability. In response to this challenge, Maverick Media and United Way of Rock River Valley urge families to enroll children in summer reading programs. Well-designed and implemented summer enrichment programs can stop summer learning losses and reduce achievement gaps in all students regardless of family income.  Keep your children reading this summer. Connect your child with a local summer reading program.
