27 READ, READ, READ If we are truly to close the opportunity gaps for ALL of our students, then we must do everything in our power to ensure that by the time a Seattle student finishes the third grade, they are reading at, or above, the third grade level. If you have children at home, continue to read to or with them. If your children are grown, take your expertise in teaching your own children to read, and offer it to our most at-risk students and schools. We are consistently one of the most literate cities in the world. Wouldn’t it be great if we proved what that meant for ALL of our children and families. What Can You Do? Every Student.
