As adults, whose workload usually holds steady year round, we don’t have as high expectations for the summer as our children might. While our routines remain consistent, summer break is a chance for the kids to sleep in, play more, and relax.

And while that pause on academic responsibilities is well deserved and much needed, the reality is that up to 30% of their school-year gains are lost.

This kind of learning loss means that the beginning of the school year, for many students and teachers, is spent reviewing skills from the previous school year to get students back to their pre-summer reading, writing, and math levels.

So, what can parents do to minimize the effects of the “summer slide” and make sure the kids have a running start when the school year starts?

From April 19–April 23, students at Eagle Hill took part in a town-wide Earth Week celebration. Each day, students learned about ways to keep our campus and our earth healthy with activities in class and outside. Activities were divided by cohort and included nature hikes/campus clean-up, helping in the EHS garden, meatless Monday, planting seeds, and special lessons in music and art.

A slideshow of photos from our Earth Week is available here!
