E. Kilpatrick, Father
I am so glad MOR Literary Club exist because my son is struggling with his reading. He looks forward to his sessions with MOR LC every week.
A. Wells, Math Teacher
I wish there were programs like what Max Opus Round offers when I was growing up.
T. Thomas, Mother
My daughter struggles with her confidence level. When she saw how excited her brother and cousin were about MOR Literary Club she wanted to join the club. I am so glad Max Opus Round has a leadership program for her.
The frequency of reading to children at a young age has a direct causal effect on their schooling outcomes regardless of their family background and home environment.
In 2019, nearly six out of 10 children (58%) completing third grade were not prepared to meet the literacy challenges of the next grade level. After school and summer learning programs offering high quality literacy instruction can help bridge the gap that impacts students’ academic performance.
Low-income children typically lose two to three months in reading skills over the summer if they do not have adequate learning opportunities. This loss is cumulative; in fact, summer learning loss during elementary school accounts for two-thirds of the achievement gap in reading between low-income children and their middle-income peers by ninth grade.
The U.S. Department of Education reports that fourth-grade classrooms with low parental involvement have students with average reading scores that are 46 points below the national average.
