Research tells us that summer is a time of high anxiety for parents. The routine is changed and parents struggle to find meaningful activities for their children to engage in. Parents crave direction from teachers and schools about the types of academic activities they should encourage over the summer months.
Fortunately, parent groups and schools can offer the ThinkStretch Summer Learning Kit Sale. Each summer learning kit includes a Parent Guide to Summer and student workbook. In the fall, when the students return their workbooks, bronze, silver and gold achievement medals are delivered directly to the school for distribution. Students who complete their workbooks return to school confident and prepared to learn new material – a real benefit to students, teachers and the school!

Schools and parent groups receive high praise for offering the ThinkStretch Summer Learning Program to parents. PTO’s have told us that this is one of their most popular parent offerings. A few PTO/A’s have increased the price of the ThinkStretch books to above $17 to cover administrative costs or to raise fundraising dollars.
Innovative schools and parent groups offer scholarships for families. The parent order form includes a box asking if the family needs a scholarship to cover the cost of the ThinkStretch Summer Learning Program. In addition, parents are offered the opportunity to purchase an extra kit or simply contribute a few dollars towards the purchase of a summer learning kit for a child in need at their school on every order form. This allows your parent group or school to ensure that families who may not be able to afford ThinkStretch books for their children over the summer have the same opportunity to return to school confident and prepared to learn in the fall.
