literacy is everywhere

Literacy is defined as the opportunity and ability to not only read and write, but to listen, to speak and to reason. Our ability to make sure that students are literate is at the foundation of our Strategic Plan's core values. 



During “I Love to Read Month” in February, SoWashCo Schools is hosting a literacy contest that is open to all students.

To participate in the contest students are asked to submit a book recommendation video.

The deadline to submit your video is Thursday, Feb, 29.
