With summer just around the corner, students eagerly await the moment they will get to rest and relax without having to worry about studying or doing homework; however, there are detrimental learning losses when children are on summer break. To avoid learning loss, many researchers suggest that children get tutoring or participate in educational summer camps, during the summer, in order to retain the information they have learned during the school year and to prepare for the new information they will be learning during the new school year.

We are excited to be participating in GATE-together again this year. On May 19th, we will be presenting our tips on blog writing to Elementary and Junior High School GATE students from the Chino Valley Unified School District. GATE-together is a terrific program aimed at gifted students from 4th to 8th grade. The students are presented with several different workshops spanning many different subjects, and they are given the opportunity to pick 3 that they are interested in. The workshops expose these gifted students to many different subjects and they allow them to explore different ways of expressing their creativity.
In an effort to share the knowledge that we have acquired throughout the years we have written a few blog articles on topics that we are very passionate about. Some of the more noteworthy ones are our blog articles on the benefits of Arts Education, how to improve your child’s Critical Thinking Skills, and our School on Wheels Motivating the Unmotivated Workshop Review.
