Enjoy virtual children’s stories weekly with pyramid principals. Eastside Reads videos will be posted weekly to each campus website in the Eastern Hills pyramid as well as on school social media pages.

Eastern Hills pyramid executive director Deborah Traylor will offer parents at-home strategies for increasing literacy in grades Kindergarten-5. This collaboration is an effort to ensure alignment with the District’s 100 X 25 FWTX initiative by providing early childhood enrichment opportunities focused on language acquisition and literacy development. These opportunities improve a child’s potential for school readiness and early academic success.

Fort Worth ISD’s 100 X 25 FWTX initiative sets a goal of 100% of third graders reading on or above grade level by the year 2025. Read Fort Worth convenes cross-sector community partners with a common goal of ensuring that students have the foundational literacy skills to read on grade level by third grade. The work is approached by gathering community partners motivated to achieve these common goals; bringing data to inform what action could produce the greatest impact; collecting community input from students, families, and teachers to co-develop interventions; and leveraging key stakeholders to implement solutions.
