Slow the summer slide with Summer Bridge!

Did you know that on average students lose four to eight weeks of learning over the summer? Touching on important school skills over the summer sets kids up for a more successful fall by keeping academic skills active, and it doesn’t have to feel like summer school.

Summer Bridge is for TCS students.
