To keep Hillsborough County kids learning throughout the summer, some of our Partners in Education offered exciting and fun challenges to help students retain the math and reading skills they’ve learned this past year, while ramping up their skills for the new school year.
We thank our partners, DimensionU and myON for helping our Hillsborough County students stay engaged throughout the summer offering free, self-directed opportunities that parents and students could have fun with together.
