The Middle Country Central School District recently hosted its third annual literacy event to celebrate and encourage literacy throughout the District’s ten elementary schools. The night, titled “Spring into Literacy!”—is held each year to provide the District’s youngest students an unforgettable night in which reading and writing come to life. The evening featured three sessions filled with an assortment of workshops focused on engaging students through popular literary works and practicing their reading and writing skills.
Coinciding with the informative and engaging workshop, was a poetry café in the school library – allowing the young writers to recite their self-written poetry to an adoring audience. Additionally, a young authors’ showcase was held in the cafeteria giving students the opportunity to showcase a story they wrote during the 2017-2018 school year. The District continues to host engaging after-school educational events, providing a platform for students to share their creative accomplishments.
