Stop the Summer Slide program a success

The Townsend Elementary PTA held a summer program called “Stop the Summer Slide.” The idea was to encourage students to read six books over the course of the summer. Those who completed six books received a $10 gift certificate to the first book fair, which was held in conjunction with open house.

Studies have shown children who continue to read during the summer months retain more information from the school year, and also have an easier time when school begins again in the fall.

Sixty-three students took advantage of the program. Pictured are those who were available when the photo was taken.
