Thanks to Those Who Attended the January Reading Clubs!

A big turnout at both schools this month (280 at Magnolia and 153 at Gratts) pushed our total to 433 students in January--a new record!!! To put that in perspective, 1851 students attend Magnolia and 978 attend Gratts (both "on track" and "off track" at the year-round schools). So roughly 15% of the students from Gratts and Magnolia voluntarily chose to come back to school last Saturday morning to attend the reading clubs. Thanks to the encouragement of their parents and the enthusiasm of our fantastic volunteers and teachers (165 volunteers and 12 teachers this month), we continue to set records for the number of students who attend our reading clubs.

College Internships

We're proud to announce a second intern joining the Reading to Kids team this month. Katie Hall (USC) will be joining our Program Director Monica Livingston once a week at the office to help out. Katie joins veteran Erin Marshel (USC) who is entering her second semester with us.

Congratulations to Monica!

Some of you may have noticed in the last paragraph how we referred to Monica as our "Program Director." That's right. Effective immediately, Monica has been promoted from Program Coordinator to Program Director. This promotion reflects the great job that she has done since she started with us last summer.

Donations for the Office

If you have anything you would like to donate to the office, please feel free to contact Monica. Click here for a list of items that Monica and her interns are still looking for.
