Staying In Learning shape This Summer 

For many families, warm sunny days and getting into a summer routine is in our very near future.

Even though there is about a week of school remaining, kids are trying to forget about school schedules, books and tests. With the winter cold and spring drizzle in our rear view mirror, it is time to start thinking about the swimming pool, baseball, softball and kicking back to relax.

Hold on a moment.

In the midst of gassing up the car for a weekend get-a-way or watching that ball fly over the fence for the game winning homerun, I do need to step up to the mound and make my pitch to remind LS-H students to stay in “learning shape.”

Our school calendar gives us a 13-week hiatus from the hustle and bustle of heavy backpacks and the endless barrage of homework and project deadlines. This does not mean we can get lazy and not keep ourselves in “learning shape.”

You would not want your favorite baseball player to take a break in the middle of the season and forget how to hit a fastball. They’d need to go back to spring training and get in game shape all over again.

In order to come back to school in September in top learning shape, we need to continue to exercise our brains and get in shape at education training camp. It’s called the game of life. Research shows that students lose academic achievement during the summer if they do not continue to practice.

Reminder: No School on Monday, May 25th in honor of Memorial Day
