Reading is vital to every child’s success, and raising kids as readers means getting involved while they’re young. Reading is the most important skill you can teach a child. Of all the skills children learn, it is the one you can influence the most. Giving kids access to good books and the opportunity to choose books will motivate them to read more. And like most acquired skills, the more kids practice reading, the better they’ll get.
Therefore, we invite you to visit our 2nd Annual WHS Book Club, Scholastic Book Fair & Literacy Festival and experience a celebration of reading that provides families the opportunity to get involved in a universal mission: encouraging kids to read every day so they can lead better lives. High School Book Club members will be reading to younger groups and serving as personal shopping assistants to help families pick out just the right books.
Save the dates September 26 – 30 and watch for more details about all of the festival activities.
