Summer is fast approaching and the excitement is brewing for Summer Learning Day (SLD) 2016! #SummerLearningDay is a nationally recognized advocacy day led by NSLA to elevate the importance of summer learning for our nation’s youth in helping close the achievement gap and support healthy development in communities across the country. Through our partnership with the GLR Campaign our goal is to spread awareness and inspire action for summer learning and reading across the network of GLR communities through #SummerLearningDay. So whether you are aiming to expand upon your awesome event or pledge from last year, or gearing up to participate in Summer Learning Day for the first time, NSLA is here with great ideas and strategies to support your planning and make your #SummerLearningDay 2016 event(s) engaging, fun and effective!
