School District will host its 2nd Annual Literacy
Day on Saturday, April 28, from 10 AM to 2 PM at
Longwood Middle School.
Longwood community is invited and encouraged to
participate in this kindergarten through 12th-grade
day’s activities will now feature our first
Community Book Talk, previously listed on the calendar
for January 21. It will provide readers with an
opportunity to discuss Greg Mortenson’s Three
Cups of Tea. A young adult version of Three Cups
of Tea and a picture book entitled, Listen to the
Wind, make it possible for all ages to enjoy this
story and join in age-appropriate activities and
discussions in April. The books are being read in
many classrooms and copies are available from the
hope to build on the overwhelming response to our
first Literacy Day last spring, with literacy showcases,
visiting authors, writing workshops, hands-on activities,
a planetarium show, poetry slams and other activities
for all grade levels. The event will also provide
an opportunity to highlight the work of our student
and staff authors, as well as to participate in
author readings and autograph signings.
be sure to Save the Date!
