"On behalf of my 5th grade class, I want to thank you for running the Learning A-Z Star Donation Challenge. My students were motivated to not only help others in need, but voluntarily read as much as they could on Raz-Kids to earn more stars to donate. In the process of demonstrating their concern for others less fortunate, they became better readers. They are truly proud to receive recognition for their efforts."

- Maureen McMorrow 5th Grade Teacher Hicksville Public Schools Hicksville, NY
