Literacy Committee of Mission, who hosts the annual Riot of Reading event at Mission Central Elementary and The Family Fun Night at West Heights Elementary, this has been our new normal too. We can not celebrate the Riot of Reading as a community group this year, so we are trying something new. For five days, over Feb.1 – Feb.5, we will present to you Literacy in entertaining ways on our Youtube channel, Mission Literacy in Motion. We
will have presentations by Norden the magician, Elspeth Powers and her puppets, Storytime from the Library, a Mother Goose session and a demonstration on the importance of play.
Please join us and together we will continue learning together.
“Literacy is learning and we never stop learning”.
