Why Family Literacy  

Registration for the Fall 2017 Reading Buddies program will begin in September 2017. 

Home is where our literacy grows.

When families read, write, rhyme, count and play with literacy together, kids are more ready for school, and parents have more confidence being kids’ first and best teachers. Everybody’s literacy grows.

15 minutes every day is all you need: read together, make crafts, tell stories, cook with recipes, fix things, write the grocery list, sing songs.

And Langley has GREAT family literacy programs.

Langley School District #35 supports family literacy programs at every school.
