PCCEO Head Start and Early Head Start are each hosting Literacy Night in March. The importance of Literacy Fun Night is to assist with helping children develop an interest in books and to understand the meaning from stories and other information. Head Start Family Development Specialist Tracy Fondren says “The primary goal is to support activities and reading to help children build language and comprehension skills”. The hope is for the evening to continue building upon a healthy school/family relationship. Dates and locations for each event can be found below.
