2015 Celebrate Literacy Week, Florida! - January 26-30, 2015

"Reading Accelerates Success"

We're already building excitement for Celebrate Literacy Week, Florida! (CLW) which will be held January 26-30, 2015! Our theme "Reading Accelerates Success" encourages our students to connect literacy with all kinds of careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). This year we are providing a unique experience to students throughout the state that will help to solidify the importance of literacy and its tie to STEM in the minds of our children. Our educational partners are joining the Just Read, Florida! to bring portable planetariums to elementary and middle schools so that students can sit under the stars and learn how reading relates to science and space technology. We'll talk about constellations and their relationship to mythology, planets, space exploration, and bring it all back to the importance of literacy.

Celebrate Literacy Week, Florida is an annual event during which students, teachers, administrators, parents and volunteers all celebrate the tremendous success Florida's students have accomplished over the past decade. We also take the opportunity during the week to encourage our students to keep reading and improving their skills. We know that if Florida's students are going to shoot for the moon and achieve great success they must have the literacy skills that 21st century careers demand. Florida's educators and students will continue to make strides toward increasing student achievement in literacy, and through experiences like the portable planetarium tour, students will be challenged to read every day because "Reading Accelerates Success".
