A Family That Reads Together, Succeed Together


St. Athanasius Parents/Guardians,


Take a moment, at least 20 minutes a day, to read to your scholar/s.

"Research has found that young children whose parents read to them daily have been exposed to at least 290,000 more words by the time they enter kindergarten than kids who aren’t read to regularly. And depending on how much daily reading time kids get, that number can go up to over a million words. All that exposure likely makes it easier for kids to expand their vocabularies and understand the variety of texts they’ll need to read as they get older, both inside school and out".
