Leer Para Crecer
September 28, 2013
You, Me, We Oakley! partners annually with the Oakley Union Elementary School District, Friends of Oakley and the Leer Para Crecer Committee to sponsor Leer Para Crecer (LPC) or "Read to Grow". Leer Para Crecer is an early child literacy event that was put together primarily to reach out to monolingual Spanish speaking parents in order to further engage them in improving their child's literacy skills. Through workshops, organized by teachers, parents obtain the skills and strategies that they can implement at home despite language barriers that may exist.
Entertainment is provided by Oakley's Balet Folklorico, Art Fernandez and Elsa Fernandez. School District Administrators and City employees attended the event in order to show continued support of this literacy event.
Participants were given additional informational pamphlets and free books that would help parents apply the strategies they learned during the workshops. Parents were also given time to explore the different resources that are available in the community including CCC Library, healthcare and legal services.
