Parent Meet-Up: Pre-Literacy Skills and Family Time

June 14th,
7:00pm to 8:15pm
All parents of pre-readers are invited. We'll review the research relating to pre-literacy skills and how they drive your child's future academic success. After we share suggestions and resources, you will go home with ideas for integrating pre-literacy skill-building into your daily family time. Your children are welcome to attend with you if necessary; we will offer simple, quiet activities to engage them while we meet.
