Summer Learning Challenge

The New Hampshire Department of Education has launched the Summer Learning Challenge in an effort to help students sustain and improve their skill levels and minimize the "summer slide" – the decline of achievement levels and retention of information while they are out of school.

NH Summer Reading Program

Libraries all over New Hampshire will be providing programs and materials to explore all things space as they present “A Universe of Stories” during their 2019 summer library program. The Collaborative Summer Library Program and STAR Net are partnering to share Stem resources and more with libraries across the country. Programs are free and open to children of all abilities. Help prevent the “summer-slide” and check your local newspaper or stop in at the library nearest you for more information and a schedule of events.
