Dear Grade Level Reading Coalition:
The new school year has arrived! And we are so excited for what SY18-19 will bring as we all work together to improve reading outcomes for students in Baltimore City. This summer we spent time exploring new summer reading initiatives and reflecting on how best to continue our efforts.
In this newsletter, you will learn about what we have been up to this summer and how we are ushering in the new school year. Please send us any announcements or updates that you would like us to share—we are happy to spread the word and post on social media.
Please stay tuned for our next upcoming Grade Level Reading Coalition Meeting. We will be sending an invite out very soon. I look forward to sharing where GLR is headed and seeing you all there.
Thank you BELL, Port Discovery, and the Pratt
1st Grade Work Update
Grade Level Reading continues to partner with Baltimore City Public Schools and Improving Education to provide families with actionable ways to support reading growth at home. Our efforts will again be centered in the six focus schools (Abbottston, Armistead Gardens, Lakeland, Liberty, Matthew H. Henson, and Woodhome). These are some of the initiatives that we will be working on throughout the school year:
Please email Ruth Farfel if there is a need or announcement you would like the Coalition to know about at firstname.lastname@example.org.
