School's Out for Summer!

Summer at the ocean in Huntington Beach, California
In many parts of the country, school's out for summer and students are heading to the beach for some surfing, swimming or beach volleyball.

Just as it takes practice to be able to stay on the surfboard or swim long distances, it takes regular practice for elementary students to keep from losing ground in math over the summer. That's where Excel Math Summer School Edition can help.

Some teachers are recommending that parents use the Excel Math Summer School Edition with their students to help close the achievement gap over the summer. Here's what one teacher in Illinois called to tell us:

"We are thrilled with Excel Math! We even have parents ordering the summer school edition to keep the math concepts fresh in their students' minds over the summer break.”
— Teacher at St. Patrick Catholic School in Washington, Illinois

According to The HechingerEd blog, "When kids return to school in the fall, on average they’ve slipped by about a month from where they were in the spring."
