Unlocking Support for
Kids with Dyslexia
Don't miss this amazing show!
Monarch High School is presenting
The Lightning Thief: Percy Jackson the Musical
The musical is based on Rick Riordan's best selling novels, and the show is filled with family friendly humor, special effects and awesome music! Here's a bit more about the story: The idea for Percy Jackson came when author Rick Riordan made up bedtime stories for his nine-year-old son Haley, who had been diagnosed with ADHD and dyslexia. At the time, Haley refused to read and hated school, but was fascinated by the Greek myths he had been studying in second grade. He asked that his father tell him stories based on Greek mythology. ... In his new story, Riordan created a different kind of hero in Percy Jackson and made ADHD and dyslexia part of his powers.

To ensure that the intervention for dyslexic students at all grade levels is scientifically-based with attention to frequency, intensity, duration, and fidelity.
To create an equitable pathway through high school, to provide access to all curriculum with peers of similar intellectual capacity, and to achieve similar graduation rates to the overall student population.
