K-6 Digital Summer Learning Page Available for Avon Families
The balanced calendar addresses summer loss statistics by reducing time away from school relative to traditional calendars. Two months away from school may still have an impact on all learners, especially younger children. Keeping your child in a routine of learning and exploration is just a click away this summer!
For this reason, the Digital Summer Learning Page is being provided to our families to promote continuous learning throughout the summer months. A wealth of resources may be accessed through the ACSC website and do not require an ACSC student login. Make summer learning sizzle and boost your child’s learning confidence by engaging in these fun activities!
