A hard copy of this notice was sent home with students last week.
You are invited to our Family Literacy Event on
Thursday January 29th from 5:45 – 6:45 pm.
We have planned our Literacy Event the week of Family Literacy Day, which is held annually on January 27th. It was developed by ABC Life Literacy Canada in 1999 to celebrate adults and children reading and learning together and to encourage Canadian families to spend at least 15 minutes a day enjoying a learning activity together. www.abclifeliteracy.ca
According to the data we received from our ‘What Are Your Thoughts’ family survey (http://bit.ly/1ATznRx), many families would like to get involved in community-building activities highlighting literacy growth. Our evening will provide multiple opportunities for you and your child to engage in literacy activities alongside other families.
Our evening will be organized like this:
5:45 – Arrival and receive your Literacy Evening Bingo Card
5:45 – 6:40 – Visit literacy stations around our school and spend time engaged in various activities.
**Get your Bingo Card stamped at each activity your visit**
6:45 – End of our event – Deposit your Bingo card in the box on your way out the door to be entered into a draw for a fun family literacy prize!
