Jonathan’s Story

Jonathan’s chocolate brown eyes gleam with pride as he pulls an orange folder from his back pack. “I’ve got my test folder! I’ve got a lot of 100’s!” offers the third grader.

Before attending Children of the City’s Create Success, Jonathan’s favorite subject was gym. Now he is up for the challenge of solving any math problem that could possibly confound his peers. Jonathan is bright, and with a little extra help from his Create Success tutor, he discovered that he loved to learn. “It’s fun here. We have discussions and you get all your homework done.”

When his school work is finished you can find Jonathan pursuing the bookshelves in search of non-fiction material. He is currently devouring every book he can find about reptiles. “I really like reading time,” he smiles as he cracks open a new book about snakes.
