Celebrating Memorial Day
Memorial Day, the unofficial start of summer, but this holiday is an opportunity to reflect on the past by taking time out to honor those who have fallen in battle and to remember the long difficult wars that have been fought.
This short video reminds all of us “Why We Remember”. Parents are encouraged to watch the video with your children and then discuss “Who should we remember on this Memorial Day?”
Summer is just around the corner! Here are a few resources to assist parents in planning activities that promote continued learning over the summer:

- Summer Learning Ideas at Home and in your Community
- Tips to Keep Tweens and Teens Learning during the Summer
These resources should help you get started on your plan for summer learning! More resources will be provided in June!
