Welcome to the final issue of our Summer of Learning newsletter! Thank you for subscribing to our weekly updates. We hope that your child is feeling eager and ready to return to school with all the new knowledge they gained over the summer. As we wrap up, we wanted to share all the resources we’ve mentioned over the past couple of months as well as a few final back-to-school tips. Here’s to a successful and fun school year!

Check out this resource: Summer 2019 Wrap Up!

Even though school is almost back in session, we wanted to remind you that at-home learning is still incredibly important. Taking the time to reinforce what your child is learning at class will help them academically and emphasize the importance of education in their lives. Luckily, the tips & resources we shared over the summer remain just as useful.

Click through to our blog to find a round-up of our resources. Do an activity that was successful or try a new one that you and your child didn’t have time to get to!
