Recently the Power Read students were asked for their views of their Power Read experience. The students were asked one of four questions and their responses were recorded by their mentors.
As you can tell from their responses, the students in grades Kindergarten through 5th grade enjoy their time spent reading and conversing with their mentors.
Here are a few of their responses:
