Become a Literacy Supporter!
Literacy is one of the foundational cornerstones of a successful life.

Learn more about our Readers Read Bookstore!
This bookstore is held 3 times a year, before Winter, Spring, and Summer break. Any student who doesn't have a large at home library can come pick out brand new books that are a just-right reading level for them. Younger students get 12 books over the course of the year, older students get 8 books over the course of the year. We have heard from parents that having engaging, just right books to read increases the chances that students read over breaks. Our bookstore serves about a third of the students in our school.
