The traditional school year for preK-12 students spans over 10 months, generally August to May or September to June, in over 80 percent of the public schools within the United States. I had the pleasure of teaching at the first multitrack year-round school in North Carolina, Morrisville Year-Round Elementary School, and learned several important principles about learning that can be applied no matter students' school schedules.  Learning is not limited to school; learning is a way of life.  I will provide suggestions on using the resources in our local communities to stimulate young scholars academically and ensure that they are immersed in a productive learning environment, whether formally enrolled in school or not.
