Golightly Education Center has been chosen to host a Target/Scholastic Read and Rise Family Reading Event on Wednesday, May 23, 2012. It will be held in the new Target Library and Parent Resource room and auditorium. The event will include light refreshments and a Family Literacy Workshop geared toward parents/guardians where they will receive tips on how to support literacy at home. Each parent/guardian will receive a Read and Rise Family Guide that contains strategies to help them support literacy with their children at any age level. A storyteller in the library will read to them. After the literacy presentations, all families will come together to participate in a Build-A-Book activity, and then they will take their books home. Volunteers from Target will assist the families.
Target also will donate a $5.00 gift card to each student in the school to purchase a book from the school Book Fair running from Monday, May 21st through Friday May 25th. The Book Fair will be open during the Read and Rise event with discounted books for families to purchase.
