Parents

Want to make summer reading a family affair?
We have the road map for you right here – in English or Spanish.

Did you know that student performance on standardized tests is positively affected by using the newspaper as a reading resource and that the combined use of the newspaper in school and at home brings an even greater increase in test scores?

We know that children learn best when parents are interested and involved in their education. Many parents have found that looking through and reading the newspaper is an easy, enjoyable way to read, talk and think together with their children. Seeing a parent read the newspaper every day motivates a child to want to do the same – read and learn.
