One Literacy Coalition family’s story:
In February, after a parent teacher conference with our six-year-old’s teacher, we found out that when the school tested him in January, he was excelling in math but he was falling behind in reading and writing.
His daycare told my husband about the Literacy Coalition. So, he called and left a message. Later that same week, we stopped in and talked to the coordinator. She was very friendly and put us at ease right away.
Almost immediately, we had a phone call from his new tutor. She is a retired kindergarten teacher and she was just starting to work with the Literacy Coalition. Our son met with her at the library for several weeks, twice a week, and he worked with her on his sight words and writing.
His school teacher has commented on how proud of him she was for his hard work and that it showed. Last week, he even had an extra special note sent home that told us that he went from a reading level A to a reading level C – completely passing reading level B. We are so very proud of him and everything that he has accomplished in such a short time working with her. He was even nominated for the Northwest P.A.L.S. award for the month of March by his teacher and will get to be presented with a certificate and a special lunch at the school.
This just goes to show how much his tutor and the Literacy Coalition has helped our son and our family. Thanks so much for all that you do!
