We love hearing about our Members' achievements and successes! Here are some highlights about our community:

American Reading Company's ARC Core is the first and only ELA curricula to receive a Green review for K-8. The process is based on teachers knowing their students, students knowing themselves, and teachers & students working as partners in the learning process.

RKL LLP, one of our Educational Partners, was recently named Outstanding Business of the Year by Leadership York of York County, PA, based on its community engagement and philanthropy.

Congrats to both of you!
