You can grow ideas in the garden of your mind. — from Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood
What a joy to sow seeds of learning, and to see students blossom into new readers! Thanks to the dedicated service of 130 literacy tutors in the 2015-2016 school year, we provided individual reading instruction for 295 students. Of those we saw over the whole school year, 65% improved by two grade levels or more in their reading skills. These students have learned to read, and now they can read to learn, growing their own garden of ideas, exploration and discovery.
