Help your child prevent the "summer slide" by encouraging them to read four or more books over the summer. Researchers have found that kids who do not read and practice the reading comprehension strategies they have learned during the school year will be almost 2 months behind at the beginning of the next grade. Need Books? Check out the McDowell Public Library.
A School Improvement Plan identifies the direction the school plans to take based on needs from previous years data.
