The Lawrence Barnes Elementary School PTO will sponsor its 2nd annual "Reading around the World" family literacy event at the school from 2:00 - 4:30 pm on Saturday, February 16th, 2008. This event aims to both promote a love of reading and celebrate the school's rich diversity.

After a Welcome Ceremony complete with storytelling and multicultural dance, children and families will "travel" at their own pace through different "countries" or "continents" throughout the building, where they will experience each region's cultural traditions and history through music, language, art, geography, literature and more.

Special guest readers, each with a unique connection to Barnes, will also be reading continuously in the Learning Center upstairs, where families can sit back and enjoy the stories and the comfy seating.

"Reading around the World" culminates with an International Food Celebration in the cafeteria, showcasing scrumptious treats from around the world, followed by a free book giveaway sponsored by Children's Literacy Foundation (CLiF.)

Please join us!
