Summer Learning

Summer is a time to celebrate, but when kids stop reading over the break, they start falling behind. This is called "summer slide". United Way, Ready.Set.READ! and The Summer Learning Coalition are working to help kids maintain their reading skills over the summer months. To join the Summer Learning Coalition, submit a program or learn more, contact Alicia Hartman at 610-685-4577 or aliciah@uwberks.org.
