Whether it’s fall, winter, spring, or summer break, it can seem like a chore to get back into the school groove. Summer may be especially tough because of the longer amount of time a student has out of the regular school routine.
It’s always nice to have a break, or a vacation, where there are few responsibilities, and you can relax. Your child can still enjoy all of that while also setting themselves up for success when it comes to having to return back to school.
Statistics have shown that over summer vacation, many students lose a bit of what they have learned throughout the year. Reading tends to be at the top of that list.
We want our students, your children, to be able to retain what they’ve learned, but we also want the kids to have fun and enjoy their summer. So how can we balance both of those things?
Orlando, Florida, is synonymous with diversity. Our area is probably best known as the home of Walt Disney World.
Tens of millions of people visit our area to ride the rides and meet their favorite characters. Many of those people are from somewhere other than the United States. Per the Orlando Sentinel:
“International tourists make up a bigger piece of the pie at Disney World, where they typically comprise between 18 percent and 22 percent of total attendance.”
People from across the globe also move to the area to work at places like Disney World and Universal Studios. Thousands of people travel here for seasonal opportunities, only to fall in love with our diverse culture and build their lives here.
As we had addressed in a previous blog, Orlando has become home to many from around the world. With many attractions like Walt Disney World, the Weather, Education, Cost of Living, and Health care, Orlando has a large diversity of people from many different backgrounds from many different countries.
Having a place like The Crenshaw School can help those expanding their language horizons learn English. Learning English while living in the United States can be very beneficial since it is the national language, and many other people have learned it as a second language who are not from the United States.
