Read Out Loud.
Lead Out Loud.
When we read together and read out loud, we develop better readers and stronger leaders.
This site serves as a resource to help our families, the school community and our neighborhood read together, read aloud and build our students into the next generation of leaders.

Literacy Lesson: Windows & Mirrors
All kids need diverse books! They need books that are mirrors - that reflect their own identities and experiences; and they need books that are windows - that allow them to see into the lives of people who are different from them.
