Let us remember: one book, one teacher, one child and one pen can change the world.
We would add...and one volunteer!
Thanks to your hard work, our readers this week increased to 187,261 – with 35,953 at frequency* and over 108 million pages read!
Pages read increased by 75% over last year for school readers.
Thank you for all your hard work that makes our learners’ successes possible!
*at frequency = students are reading books multiple times during the school year, with a general target of thirty times (more for lower grades, less for upper grades). Our data shows that most of these students read for at least 20 minutes each time.
Tim Wilson, Learning Ally's Chief Financial Officer, sent out this message over the weekend:
Forget March Madness, we’re celebrating Olympians today! Terrie Noland spent the day at Nola Dunn videoing their Great Reading Games awards ceremony. Terrie’s video is attached, along with her comments below about the ceremony.
Terrie, Learning Ally's Vice-President for Educator Initiatives, says:
The students refer to themselves as “Olympians” at Nola Dunn Academy in Burleson, Texas. They placed #1 in the GRG in the Orange Bracket. When you are in 2nd grade, are diagnosed with dyslexia, have struggled to read, and accomplish amazing things in the GRG with Learning Ally, you give the District Superintendent a BIG high five in front of an entire audience of students and family.
