THE STORY:

Education begins with literacy.

We are raising money for students at our school who are struggling readers. In order for them to be successful, they need an evidence based, remedial reading program.

Last spring, we performed a pilot study using Lexia Core 5 and Lexia Strategies on 50 students for 3 months. The results were extremely positive with 60% of students gaining 6 months to a year increase in literacy skills.

We are seeking to continue the same program but extend it over a 3 year period. This will provide the support needed to 150 students at a critical point in their development to gain the literacy skills needed to succeed in school and in life. The cost of this 3 year program is $4,800 – only $32.00 per student. Unfortunately we do not have those funds in our current budget. We are hoping you would make a donation to help cover the cost to support the Timilty Middle School student who needs support in reading.

Lexia Core 5 and Lexia Strategies have been proven effective in remediating middle school student’s literacy skills. Please review their website at www.lexialearning.com to see what the program entails.

We look forward to sharing our results with you at the end of the year. Donating to the Timilty’s reading program would help 50 students each year for 3 years reach their goals of becoming independent successful readers.
