Event Description

Research shows that good literacy skills have a long-term impact on your child’s development! Reading proficiency by third grade is the most important predictor of high school graduation and career success. Also, children who have good literacy skills are less likely to experience grade retention or school failure, drop out, or exhibit delinquent behavior. When they become adults, they are less likely to be unemployed or underemployed.! Each workshop will begin with a FREE family meal, followed by an hour-long parent workshop, and ending with a parent-child literacy activity. Childcare will be provided nearby during the parent workshop. This workshop offers an opportunity for caregivers to come together to share resources and experiences! Materials, food, and childcare are provided FREE of charge for this workshop. For families with a child ages 3-5 years, siblings welcome!
