Understand reading comprehension?

The next “Coffee with the Principal” – 8:55-9:30 a.m. on Thursday, Oct. 26 – will focus on “Comprehension Strategies: What Parents Can Do at Home to Help.”

Have you ever wondered about what reading assessments look like? Want to know more about how children move up level in reading? Principal Katie May will share some of the ways you can help at home.

Come with questions! If you are unable to join us, email Ms. May  your questions at kjmay1@seattleschools.org.

The PTA supplies the coffee, so bring your cup!
