Yo Puedo Leer 2014/2015 Graduation

IMG_3951Our Yo Puedo Leer program just ended for the year, and we would like to congratulate all of our pre-school graduates. This year, La Casa graduated seventeen children, which tops the last two years classes of twelve and fourteen respectively. Yo Puedo Leer prepares primarily Spanish speaking four year olds for kindergarten. Yo Puedo Leer is a language inclusion program that teaches students in both Spanish and English. The program is funded by the United Way, and has been a part of La Casa De Amistad for 10 years.

Graduation today was filled with tons of laughter, great food, performances, and most importantly, recognizing our young graduates for their academic achievements
