The Northwest Evaluation Association (NWEA) predicts significant learning loss from COVID school closures, especially in math. That means summer learning enrichment is more important than ever. Parents and caregivers can support learning throughout the summer season using these and other resources and tips to get kids ready for the next school year.

We hope you enjoy celebrating National Summer Learning Week, July 12-16, 2021.

DiscoverSummer.org is your family’s stop to find summer programs and resources. NSLA and our partners have also created a Family Companion Guide with additional tips, insights and resources.

We are excited to introduce a special social media campaign entitled Our Time to Shine! with new camera frames so you can brand pictures of your family participating in #SummerLearningWeek.
