Now that I've dismantled every point he tried to make I have
two questions: With all the intelligent local letters Pique receives why do you

Literacy Program in which parents and community members work one on one with
our students in our classrooms? Did you know that our parents spend countless
hours in our library helping to make it a wonderful place for our children to
