Passport to Success – Parents
Registration ends June 30, 2016
Did you know that students can lose up to one month of learning during the summer? This is called the “summer slide” and it can take teachers three to four weeks to re-teach the previous years’ skills at the beginning of the new school year. To help students continue learning during the summer, Families In Schools (FIS) launched Passport to Success, a an innovative family engagement campaign that reduces summer learning loss by encouraging students and their families to participate in summer learning activities.
Families receive the following items when they register:
1) A Passport (stamp book) (if the children have not received one)
2) A Passport to Success Resource Guide (map) (if the children have not received one)
3) A weekly Passport to Success newsletter with the following information:
*Promotional information on museums, community events, and activities
*Summer learning tips
*Weekly Scavenger Hunt Photo Challenges where we encourage families to take a photo at a designated location, and post it on Instagram or Facebook. The photo with the most likes is eligible for a prize.
*Job opportunities in the Greater Los Angeles Area and Inland Empire
*Volunteer opportunities from Families In Schools
*Opportunities to win prizes throughout the summer
