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”.

As part of Literacy Week at Educational Horizons Charter School, students paired up in the grades to be reading buddies. The younger student brought a favorite book from home or school and asked an older student to read to them. They had a great time sharing the stories.
Last Tuesday night was a fantastic part of our Literacy Week. Our teachers dressed up as characters and read to families. Classes entertained us with performances. We ate pizza and decorated cupcakes. Our school earned a gift card to be used for supplies and books. Many families donated books to their child’s class. We had a wonderful time visiting and celebrating reading.
