Families often ask how to support student learning over the summer. Already, you are planning summer experiences that build knowledge, spark curiosity about the world, and help your child gain confidence. Riding bikes, hiking, visiting the public library, playing in the neighborhood, attending summer camp, playing board games as a family, and traveling outside of our city build knowledge and a sense of wonder. Reading books and discussing them together also develops rich language skills and fosters a love of literacy. In addition, the more relaxed summer schedule can be a wonderful time to build independence and confidence at all ages as children learn new skills such as tying shoes, and how to contribute to family chores. In addition to all of that, if you are seeking tools to boost or just keep up academic skills, a list of resources and links are provided here.

Do you remember when your child started kindergarten? Can you recall how helpful it was to meet a family who already knew the ropes at White Oaks and could answer your many questions? Please consider volunteering to serve as a buddy family, making an incoming kinder family feel welcome and letting them know that you can be a resource for them if they have any questions or concerns. Your connection and friendly face on campus make a difference!
