Parents of pre-school children and adults who work with young children are invited to four free literacy summits this fall to learn more about the importance of pre-school literacy.
The sessions, held in four Wake County locations on Saturdays, will offer practical advice on how simple games, play, and even everyday conversations can improve pre-school literacy skills and help create success in kindergarten.
The sessions begin with a free light breakfast and include free children’s books, drawings for gift cards, free day-care service, and breakout sessions that cover topics in detail. Topics include kindergarten preparedness, how to find the best resources at your local library, empowerment for ESL parents, and more. Spanish translators will be available during the summit and for each session.
All sessions take place from 8:30 a.m. to noon at the following locations:
- August 10, Wakelon Elementary, 821 Pippin Road, Zebulon
- August 24, Forestville Road Elementary, 100 Lawson Ridge Road, Knightdale
- September 7, Rolesville Elementary, 307 S. Main Street, Rolesville
- September 21, Carver Elementary, 291 Liles Dean Road, Wendell
The summits are organized by Wake Education Partnership and supported by PNC Bank’s Grow Up Great Initiative. Other sponsors include AT&T, Golden Corral, Christ Church Rolesville and La Conexión.
Presenting members at the summits are part of the Wake County Public School System’s WAKE Up and Read campaign. For additional information and to pre-register, call Tracey Greggs at (919) 821-7609.
