Yesterday marked the first community meeting to discuss joining the national Campaign for Grade-Level Reading. We were excited to see nearly 28, ranging from educators, to business owners, to civic leaders, and more. The Campaign for Grade-Level Reading challenges communities to increase the number of low-income students reading at grade-level by at least 100% by the year 2020. Grinnell hopes to join Ames, Council Bluffs, Des Moines, Dubuque, and Marshalltown as the next Iowa community in the campaign. Interested in helping out? Contact Kim Spasaro at (641) 236-5518 or firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit the Campaign for Grade-Level Reading website to learn more.
