WCPSS Presents Letterland at Pullen Park
Raleigh’s Pullen Park will be transformed into Letterland on Saturday, April 27, 2019 from 10 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. to celebrate preschool and elementary school students in Wake County.
Letterland brings letters to life by turning them into colorful characters, each with their own personality and stories that go along with their sounds. Wake County elementary schools in grades Pre-K-2 and many preschool programs use the phonics program as part of their literacy instruction.
