Second EPS literacy night March 26
Gilmer County’s Birth-Age 5 Leadership Team conducted the first of two literacy workshops planned for preschool and pre-K age children Feb. 26 at Ellijay Primary School. The purpose of the workshop was to promote literacy at home. Parents were provided free materials to help develop their children’s concepts of print, writing, phonological awareness, letter-sound knowledge, comprehension and oral language skills. Free books were provided to parents and children who attended. The workshop was sponsored by the L4GA grant that was awarded to Gilmer County Schools this past year. The second literacy night will be held at EPS Tuesday, March 26, from 5-6:30 p.m. All preschool age children and their parents are invited to attend.
