Beat the “Summer Slide”

Summer slide isn’t a piece of playground equipment – it’s the tendency for students to lose some of the progress they’ve made during the academic year. But there are ways to keep your students’ skills sharp and have fun all summer long.

For details, resources and lots more ways to foster reading this summer, go to HCPS’ summer reading page.

Book Fair

Encourage your child to read and help the PTA raise funds for school projects by shopping at Gayton’s spring book fair, April 15-18. It’s a win-win!

You’ll find books of all kinds at the book fair, from picture books to chapter books for advanced readers. There are books for all budgets, too.

When visiting the fair, think ahead for birthdays and holidays. How about a book for your child’s classroom? Look for the special table containing books requested by Gayton teachers.

Your book fair purchases fund PTA priorities such as new books for the library and book room, classroom projects, resources for music, art, and PE classes, and more.

Gayton’s spring book fair runs Monday, April 15, through Thursday, April 18, from 2:45 to 6:30 p.m. Wednesday night, it’s open until 7:30. Follow the signs to the library.
