Brooklyn is a kindergartner who joined the Club last year and attended virtually every day while the Club was temporarily closed. A quiet and polite Club kid, Brooklyn enrolled in Readers to Leaders Headsprout on September 4th, 2020.
Each day, she would come into the Learning Center and sit down to begin her lesson without any direction from staff. Over the course of only seven months, she completed 80 Headsprout lessons and read 75 books! She recently graduated to our STAR Reading Program.
Club Director, Chris Peterson, had this to say about Brooklyn's progress: "What’s most amazing about Brooklyn is that she began as a non-reader and now she has progressed almost two full grade levels in reading in just seven months here at the Council Bluffs Boys & Girls Club. Now that’s what I’d call a TRUE SUCCESS story!"
Way to go Brooklyn!
