Learner Surpasses "EPIC" Goal! 

Connor April 2022
CPDLF 2nd grader Connor Szymusiak set a goal at the beginning of the school year to read 100 books in Epic and recently reached 200 books! 
CPDLF uses Epic (a digital library and e-reader for books and videos for children) for instruction as well as fostering the love of reading. Connor said that while his favorite class at CPDLF is art, he is excited that Epic has a lot of books for him to choose from. Mrs. Jamie Saylor, 2nd grade instructor, said, "Connor is a well rounded and creative student who loves reading. It was so exciting to hear about the books he was reading. I am so proud of Connor!"
