Why this is IMPORTANT:
Years of research have shown how important the continuation of learning during the summer is to ALL students. The Mississippi Department of Education, along with the Mississippi Library Commission and Mississippi Public Broadcasting, challenges districts and parents/guardians to continue the learning so that ALL students are prepared for the 2022-2023 school year. Make summer learning fun and engaging by participating in the local public library’s summer reading program, watching informational shows on MPB, or using the resources on this site.
We have compiled learning activities and digital resources that are aligned with the Mississippi College- and Career-Readiness Standards to continue and reinforce your child's education during the summer months. Parents and caregivers should promote good screen time practices when students are online continuing their studies, playing games, or socializing with friends and family.
There are several different ways to engage students in reading this summer. The Mississippi public libraries are hosting activities based on the 2022 Summer Reading theme – Oceans of Possibilities – which celebrates all the animals and creatures that live beneath the waters. Students and parents can visit the Strong Readers, Strong Leaders website to find additional reading and writing activities to help promote summer learning.
