Family Literacy Nights

FLN cover 2018

Family Literacy Night Basics
Thanks to grant funds from the Marathon Classic, the Literacy Coalition is able to hold fun Family Literacy Nights at our local schools. All county and city schools are on a rotation basis. Schools not receiving a Family Literacy Night for the 2018-19 school year will have the option to hold one during the 2019-20 school year. During these fun events, children get to participate in literacy related activities with their parents. We show the importance of literacy while in a fun, family-friendly event.
