Celebrate Literacy Week, Florida! - January 23-27

Excitement is building around the Ninth Annual Celebrate Literacy Week, Florida! (CLW) events scheduled for January 23-27, 2017! Celebrate Literacy Week, Florida! is an annual event during which students, teachers, administrators, parents and volunteers celebrate the tremendous success of Florida's students over the past decade. With this year’s theme, "Literacy Changes Our World," students are encouraged to share a book with someone and make a difference in their community, school and family.

With the support of First Lady Ann Scott and the Florida Lottery, the Florida Department of Education promotes this week-long recognition to help students strengthen their literacy skills and become better prepared for academic success. We hope that you will take this opportunity to support reading in your homes and participate in school-wide and classroom activities. To find a list of CLW events at your child's school, visit the CLW web page and choose your child's school. During the week, school's will also be holding Literacy Nights and Young Author events.

We would like to thank the Celebrate Literacy Week, Florida! partners for providing multiple resources and opportunities for our students.

Happy Reading!
