Raising A Reader Aspen to Parachute provides evidence-based programs that foster early literacy for kindergarten reading readiness and programs to build reading success during the first few years of school. Currently our programs reach more than 2,000 children from Aspen to Parachute.
RAISING A READER ENTERS KINDERGARTEN AND FIRST GRADE CLASSROOMS! Welcome Two Rivers Community School, Basalt Elementary School and Wamsley Elementary School - our newest kindergarten classrooms. Raising A Reader Aspen to Parachute is now helping Kindergarten and 1st grade classrooms foster reading success. Book bags contain read-aloud titles AND first-reader books. Parents learn how to help with the learn-to-read process and are reminded that reading aloud is still important in the K-1 years.
OUR MISSION is to foster early literacy bonds between children and their parents to ensure that all young children from Aspen to Parachute develop a love of books and the skills to become successful readers.
