Latino Family Literacy Project Begins February 27


A new Latino Literacy Family Program begins Wednesday, February 27 at the Boys and Girls Club of Laguna Beach. The twelve-week program is each Wednesday from 5:00 p.m.-6:00 p.m.

LBUSD School Community Liaison Javier Diaz is coordinating the program, which is designed to help develop family reading routines and vocabulary development for Latino parents and their children. Mr. Diaz remarks, “Literacy is a crucial skill necessary for all students to succeed academically. This program will provide bilingual techniques parents can use at home to develop their children’s literacy skills and enhance academic achievement.”

For more information, email Mr. Diaz at jdiaz@lbusd.org or telephone him at (949) 394-6076. Additional information is available at http://latinoliteracy.com/
