Title One

Dear Parents,

Thank You for all of your support this past school year! I hope you have a fun, relaxing summer with your child! Please make time to read each day! Twenty minutes of reading each day can help children retain their reading skills over the summer. We will be in contact after testing in the fall to determine if your child continues to qualify for Title services. Please feel free to contact me with questions or concerns.
