“This year, I am very excited to continue moving up reading levels. I am on level M and cannot wait to go beyond Z! I am also very excited to go to art because I love to see my art displayed during the art show. I have done lots of arts and crafts throughout the summer, and I can’t wait to do more at school.”
Sofia Susskind is entering second grade at Success Academy Union Square.
