Welcome to Issue #2 of our Summer of Learning newsletter! Every week we will be sharing a variety of activities, resources, and tips to keep your kids learning and entertained until the new school year. 

This week, we're focusing on creating a reading plan with your child. It's not enough to hope that your kiddos will keep up their reading and literacy skills while school is out! Before the summer is in full swing, take some time to outline some reading goals that you'd like to accomplish as a family. Keep on reading for our suggestions, free events in the Denver metro area, and more at-home learning activities!
