Recent Successes and Current Challenges
Carlos started second grade this year – and his reading jumped 5 levels over
the summer! We couldn’t believe it! When I asked him how he got so much better
over the summer, he said he ‘Read all the Book Up Summer books over and over
all summer long.’ This is huge success!” Linda Wheeler, Librarian, Beverly Park
