The 2017 Summer Engagement Fair: Preventing the Dreaded Summer Slide
Join us to explore summer activities and resources to keep your children’s brains and bodies learning and active throughout the summer months!
The Summer Slide describes the loss of academic skills that students suffer over the summer. Without proper engagement and reinforcement, children can lose more than 2 months worth of their academic achievement.
CHILDREN AT RISK has partnered with a variety of organizations to host the 2017 Summer Engagement Fair. These organizations will provide parents the resources they need to prevent their children undergoing the dreaded summer slide and to provide information on summer programs for: health, nutrition, literacy, education, camps, and daytime activities.

Spring Branch ISD
DePelchin Children’s Center
Houston Fire Department
Harris County Public Library
Texas Hunger Initiative
Brenda and John Duncan YMCA
PEACE-Parent Engagement for Active Child Enrichment
