"I wanted to thank you for your support of purchasing the C-pens for my LAP reading students at Prairie View. The first student that used the pens was a hard working student named A------. Both of her parents are dyslexic and she could not read at all at the beginning of 2nd grade. Ali loved that the C-pen gave her freedom to listen to grade level material when doing work in class. It gave her freedom from always having to ask her teacher or peers to help. Jump ahead, A----- is now a 5th grade student. Yesterday she took the standardized mid year MAP test for ELA. Guess what??? For the first time in her life she scored at grade level standards for reading. She(and her family) could not be more proud. Each little part of Ali's team came together for an amazing result. You were a little part of A-----'s team...thank you!!"

Ms. Mulder, February 2018
