The ability to read, write, and communicate connects us to one another and empowers us to achieve things we never thought possible. Communication and connection are the basis of who we are and how we live together and interact with the world.
Literacy is the ability to identify, understand, interpret, create, compute, and communicate using visual, audible, and digital materials across disciplines and in any context.
We have amazing teachers and librarians with the expertise to help support and inspire our community to read. They have set standards and agendas for literacy instruction and evaluation, and they advocate for the cause of literacy at all levels.
Whether it’s reading or writing, literacy is an outlet to an untouchable world – your imagination. Not only is literacy a basic human right, it is a fundamental building block for learning as well as a personal empowerment tool.
Today September 8th, 2015, we want to thank those that show the importance of literacy by celebrating International Literacy Day. Join with us in thanking our teachers, librarians and all who work to raise awareness of those who cannot read or write.
International Literacy Day gives children and our communities a chance to rediscover the joys of reading while raising awareness for those without access to education. Our teachers, librarians, and leaders help provide Mt Juliet with the resources and expertise to support and inspire the students and adults to read and write.
