The Literacy Everywhere grant program has been busy with events both at school and in the community. Students received free Halloween-themed books at the CES Fall Festival, the Goodwater Hallelujah Night and the Rockford Community Trick-or-Treat. More than 700 books were given away! To build parent participation, parents were encouraged to upload pictures to their child’s teacher Remind or Class Dojo.
The Six Sundays to Literacy program has expanded to include the Weogufka Family Worship Center. Families received free books at their Fall Festival, and Brother Tommy Thornton has been sharing messages to encourage literacy with families. New Home Missionary Baptist Church is also continuing their Six Sundays to Literacy program which launched the partnership program with local churches.
Maressa Ware has been hired as the program assistant to Meg Masters, who is the director of the Literacy Everywhere grant. Mrs. Ware helps manage the social media accounts, as well as other grant activities. Mrs. Ware is a graduate of Central High School, the PTO president, and her two daughters attend Coosa County schools.
The “Little Yellow School House” program was launched under the direction of kindergarten teacher Connie Hagan. Students on Mrs. Rudd’s Scooby-Doo Bus are enjoying evening read alouds by high school students and were provided with books they can read on their trip home.
Literacy Everywhere continues to reach the students of Coosa County in both the school and their communities. More than 12,000 books have already been distributed for families to build their home libraries. Plans are being made for the next literacy events which will be held at Central High School December 1 and Central Elementary December 6. Details will be provided soon.
