    Our first ever all-primary Virtual Family Literacy Event will be this Thursday, April 14th, from 6:00-7:30.  The event will include an interactive story session for the entire family to enjoy, informational sessions for caregivers and will close with read-alouds in Spanish, English and Mandarin by some of our "famous" principals, district staff, teachers and public librarians.  

    The informational sessions will include three breakout sessions, 20 minutes each, and there will be time for families to attend two sessions.  We created the sessions based on the most popular questions parents asked in a family survey we sent out this winter.
