Students at Cypress Trails Elementary School recently celebrated completing their Avoid the Summer Slide and Jump on the Water Slide summer challenge. The Palm Beach County School District took an initiative this summer, as it does every summer, to encourage children to keep up their learning over the summer. Statistics show that students can lose as much as two to three grade levels of learning in the summer if they don’t engage in educational activities. Students in grades K-5 participated in a variety of summer reading activities that were developed to help keep them engaged in reading during the summer months. As a reward for their participation, Cypress Trails students were invited to the water slide celebration on Aug. 19.
