Hello Summer!

After all of the hard work our students did during the past school year, they deserve this fun-filled break. But just because they are not in the classroom doesn't mean the learning has to stop!

Summer is the perfect time to make amazing memories with your family. Whether you're going on a road trip, having a backyard camping adventure, or just relaxing at home, there are so many opportunities to have a blast while sneaking in some real-world learning too!

For example, if you're hitting the road with your family, you can practice your math skills by calculating how much money you will need for gas, snacks, and souvenirs. Or you can put your reading skills to the test by taking turns reading the road signs and map directions out loud.

If you're staying closer to home, why not start a summer reading challenge with your siblings or friends? You could even create a fun book club where you discuss and rate the books you've read. Don't forget to thank God for the incredible gift of reading and the ability to learn about His amazing world!

And if you're feeling adventurous, you can combine camping fun with a crash course in nature studies. Go on a nature walk and see how many different kinds of plants, animals, and insects you can identify. Or set up a backyard telescope and learn about the constellations that God has put in the night sky.

The possibilities are endless when you use your creativity and remember that every day is a chance to grow your mind while having a total blast!

So get out there, make wonderful memories with your loved ones, and don't forget to thank the Lord for this incredible summer break. Before you know it, you'll be back in the classroom, feeling refreshed and ready to take on a new year of learning!
