Did you know that during the summer most kids forget some of what they’ve learned during the school year? ‘Summer slide’ can create problems for students and parents alike with a lack of engaging activities and learning opportunities.
The City of Saint Paul and the Saint Paul Public Schools created a Summer Countdown tool that consists of simple suggestions every family can use on an everyday basis to keep students active and engaged. It includes ideas and resources from free to fee-based, and from simple to complex, to help families find activities and ideas that fit their budget and lifestyle.
