  • Reading By 4th,Grade Level by 8th. This Holiday season and New Year is a time for parents to make a commitment to our child and children in general, by reading to them when ever we can. The District has prioritized our children's reading and comprehension skills to be at grade level by 8th. I feel that we the parents are the key to ensuring that our children enjoy reading by starting it at home with us the family. Please take the time and read any print when your child is with you. After all our children do like to mirror what a parent says and does.
