    Dear Families,

    One of the most important predictors of a child’s academic and future success is the ability to read by the end of third grade. Everything that happens in your child’s life in the early years has a lasting impact on their future potential. Families are essential in setting high expectations for learning and encouraging their child’s academic achievement, growth, and success! Your active participation and partnership with your child’s teacher and school, along with reading support at home, is critical to their success in meeting the assessment standards established in Alabama.
