Next month, summer will officially be here and children will be out of school.
Parents can still make summer fun for kids and help prevent information loss at the same time through the county librariesâ€™ Summer Reading Program.
A common finding across numerous studies is that on average, students score lower on standardized tests at the end of the summer than they do at the beginning of summer (on the same test).
This loss for all students is estimated to be equal to about one month of teaching.
Teams involved in this yearâ€™s Relay For Life are in the midst of fund raising efforts.
Maggie Penaâ€™s team is currently selling tickets for a drawing involving an original oil painting by Nester Hernandez entitled â€śWalk by Faith.â€ť Hernandez is a former Marine Sergeant in the United States Marine Corp that graciously donated the painting for the Relay For Life efforts. The drawing for the painting will be held this Saturday.
