Being a proficient reader by the third grade is critical for lifelong success. PSD has set a goal that all
third-grade students will read at or above grade level by 2026. 

To reach this visionary goal, we need YOU, our community. PSD is spearheading a new
community-wide initiative across the Gig Harbor and Key Peninsula communities. 

We are looking for businesses, organizations, and individuals interested in helping host an event or be a part of this planning process.
