Children Are Back to School And We’re Winding Up!

Going across the state

As an organization, we are always looking for ways to have a greater impact across the state. That’s why we are excited about signing a formal agreement to launch our new Every Child Reads program with Mesa Public Schools.

Our Every Child Reads program is a research-based family engagement program that empowers parents with the skills and knowledge they need to support their child's learning and prepare them to succeed after graduation.

We will work together Mesa Public Schools to:

  1. Educate and encourage parents to enroll their children in high-quality, full-day kindergarten programs.
  2. Share critical information with parents about English Language Learners: how the programs work, what their options are, and how they can provide support.
  3. Reduce chronic absenteeism rates because if kids aren’t in school, they aren’t learning.
  4. Improve literacy through Every Child Reads at Home, a simple and effective family reading program. 
We are excited to launch this program in Mesa, and we look forward to sharing more expansion news in the months ahead!
We hope you’ve enjoyed this week’s In The Trenches. With Election Day just around the corner, a lot is going on, and we will keep you posted. If you have any questions, let us know.
