Stop Summer Slide

Please join us to celebrate the fourth annual Moonshot Moment Family Pizza Party to Celebrate National Summer Learning Day! The event is free, but registration is requested.  Reserve your spot here!

 


Did you know...

  • Every summer, low-income youth lose 2-3 months reading while their higher-income peers make slight gains.
  • The losses are cumulative; by 5th grade, students can fall 1 - 2.5 years behind. 

It doesn't have to be this way! The summer can be used  for catch-up and enrichment growth. Let's keep learning all summer long!  

Click here to view a list of free and low-price summer camps offerd by the School District of Indian River County!

The extended learning summer camps available through the School District will be held at Citrus Elementary and Treasure Coast Elementary, with weekly camps from May 30 through August 4.  Price: $90/week, includes breakfast, lunch, snacks, and all field trips.  Half day rates are available for the morning program, at $45/week.  Sign up details are here.

 The SDIRC mobile food bus will deliver free lunches to children ages 5 - 18 all summer.  Click here for a schedule of the north county locations, and click here for the south county locations!


Summer 2017 - Indian River ROCK and READ!

Please join in our community's Summer 2017: Indian River Rock and Read! Project for fun ways to build community and to keep kids learning all summer!    

It's as easy as 1, 2, 3. 

1.  Gather your supplies - rocks and  paint.  (Seashells and crayons work too.)

2.  Paint the "word of the day" on your rock (or shell.)

3.  Upload a picture of your "rock masterpiece" with the hashtag #moonrock to Facebook.com/moonshotmoment

Keep the fun going with more "rock" activities such as creating a poem from your words; creating a rock sculpture; or writing your own story with these #moonrock words.

 

Be sure to SAVE one rock to share in our "Stone Soup" community celebration of National Summer Learning Day on July 13, 2017!
