Great things continue to happen at Echo Lake. Over the past two weeks, I met with all first through sixth grade staff. Together, we reviewed student reading scores and evaluated our consistency within our Walk to Read model. I am pleased to say that students are making BIG gains with their reading with students spending 90-120 minutes on reading each day!
Cheers~ Michelle Carroll, Principal
