Twelve Days of Growing: Day 8 150 150 Way to Grow

Day 8 – Great by Eight. Our Great by Eight program expanded our successful and statistically proven home-visiting model to include children from kindergarten (age 6) through 3rd grade (age 8). Building on the strong foundation of knowledge families receive in our early learning program and through intentional collaboration with all 34 elementary schools in the Minneapolis Public Schools (MPS) district plus 6 Minneapolis public charter schools, Way to Grow teaches parents the core standards their children need to graduate from high school, and be college and career ready. Since the expansion, Way to Grow’s elementary students have made great strides in reaching grade level literacy benchmarks. During the 2012-2013 school year, 71% of kindergarten thru 2nd grade students were reading at or above grade level.

Way to Grow wants to make our schools stronger. To support our efforts with a year-end contribution, please click here or phone Melissa Meyer at (612) 874-4740.  To learn more about our programs, please explore our website.
