An Evening with Reading Results

Last night, the Reading Results Board of Directors hosted An Evening with Reading Results at the Sentinel Hotel. Thanks to generous donations by a circle of leaders launching us into the next stage of growth, we raised more than $50,000 at our inaugural event – and had a great time! Thank you to everyone in attendance.

Reading Results in the news

We’ve been hard at work with our partners Portland Public Schools, SMART, Multnomah County Library, Multnomah County SUN Service System, The Children’s Book Bank, The Shadow Project, Portland 80%ers for Educational Excellence and the Portland Trail Blazers to launch an unprecedented system of wrap-around reading supports for students in five PPS Title I schools.

We’re proud to be a leader in this effort, working to ensure that every child reads and succeeds. Like PPS Supt. Carole Smith said, “Every student can read. All of us can help.”

Thanks to The Oregonian for the coverage – and to Trail Blazer Robin Lopez for being the face of the project!
