Read Naturally Live Link
A number of students have begun a new online reading program that is being piloted at Gates School.  Students are working on improving their skills at a website called "Read Naturally" to meet certain reading goals.  They have been working on this since the beginning of spring and a letter has been sent home explaining the program to parents.
