A Thankful Parent
i received this message in an email Friday afternoon.
I am so impressed with (my daughter's) progress in reading! The reading recovery program is an excellent program. This was our first year in Shelby County Public Schools and (my daughter) started reading this year at a level one. She is now at a level 17 and will definitely finish the school year at a level 18 which is first grade’s reading goal. She loved the homework Mrs. Logsdon gave her. She especially loved it when she leveled up. (My daughter) enjoys reading now and has become more confident in her reading skills. I am so thankful for Mrs. Logsdon and the reading recovery program!
