Summer Slump to be a topic
Jalin Sead, who is seeking to unseat Brenda Penn-Williams as Norwalk NAACP President, and Tristan Fields have organized a Zoom meeting for 7 p.m. June 30 to address Summer Slump.
“We know that the pandemic has affected our students’ academic progress. We also know that students who don’t practice the skills they have learned in school far behind known as the Summer Slump,” their flier states. “Therefore, we have gathered education professionals, and leaders of organizations, to give parents tips on how to best support their children during the summer as well as information on summer program offerings. There will be a Q&A section for parents to ask questions, and get real answers. Parents will walk away with options and guidance for how to support their children by some of our city’s top educators.”
