Reading to Kids would like to thank the Family Literacy Advocates of Southern California (FLASC) for its generous donation of nearly 5,000 prize books! The mission of FLASC is to reverse the tide of under-education and poverty in the community by providing families with the opportunity to learn and grow together.
And, one of our stand-out Taskforce members and Chair of the Fundraising Committee, Ali Husain, generously donated 785 prize books to Reading to Kids, including some snazzy Spanish/English keychain dictionaries! Thanks, Ali, for your great support!

Well, after the great news from Magnolia about its 95-point gain in Academic Performance Index scores, we decided to do a bit of research on the other three Reading to Kids schools.
Well, it turns out our schools had an average gain of 65 points, though their average goals for improvement were only 14-point gains! Three out of four schools more than tripled the point increase they'd hoped for!
Here are the results for the 2003 API scores
Esperanza: 39 point gain (target: 14)
Gratts: 75 point gain (target: 16)
Magnolia: 95 point gain (target: 14)
Noble: 52 point gain (target: 13)
R2K participating schools are making big strides forward with the help of our great volunteers. Our congratulations to the hardworking teachers and administrators as well as to you for inspiring these young minds!
We look forward to seeing you on Valentine's Day!
