Following Wednesday's screening of "The Right to Read," families in attendance received free books thanks to the Cleveland Kids' Book Bank
Wednesday's screening of "The Right to Read" served as a powerful catalyst for meaningful discussions, underscoring the fundamental importance of literacy and the collective responsibility we bear in ensuring that every child has the opportunity to unlock their full potential. While highlighting stories beyond our district, the documentary resonated deeply as the faces of the children featured as they learned to read could easily reflect experiences from our classrooms.
The event was made possible through the joint efforts of Titan FAM and the Lorain County Alliance of Black School Educators.
The film reminded us of the remarkable progress in our classrooms and our approach to literacy through the implementation of The Science of Reading.
You might have heard about Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine's advocacy for science-based reading instruction. Here in Lorain, we have embraced this approach wholeheartedly. Our collaboration with Keys to Literacy has empowered our educators to incorporate effective teaching practices, ensuring our youngest learners have the skills they need to succeed.
We are delighted to share that our preschool through third-grade teachers, select secondary teachers, and school leaders have actively participated in the Keys to Literacy Series: Keys to Beginning Literacy. As a result, we have successfully positioned ourselves one year ahead of the State legislation requirements for all schools. This speaks volumes about the dedication of our educators to ensuring the best for our students.
October has so far been a very busy month. We celebrate our building leaders for National Principals Month. Additionally, we take pride in honoring the vibrant contributions of the Hispanic community as we conclude our National Hispanic Heritage Month celebrations.
We look forward to utilizing this platform to share more insightful stories, updates, and successes.
