It's safe to say that summer is a popular season for both educators and students. While many enjoyed well-deserved vacations and summer afternoons reading beside the pool, we were busy keeping up with some great stories and creating new resources to enhance your experience with FIP Your School Ohio. In case you missed them, here is a quick look at some of our favorite things about summer:
