Book Character Dress up Day at Central

Literacy plays a vital role in transforming students into socially engaged citizens. Reading stimulates our brain and widens our imagination. It opens our minds to new ideas that help us experience and analyze the world through the lives of others. Make sure to encourage reading at home every day as well as family book discussions.
