Dunbar Students Celebrate International Literacy Day
Did you know that approximately 67 million children around the globe do not have access to primary school education and another 72 million miss out on secondary school education? International Literacy Day, recognized September 8, 2014, helped to bring a global awareness to the importance of reading.
I am proud of the students and staff at Dunbar Elementary School for taking a moment this week to remind everyone that access to books and great literacy teachers is a gift and should never be taken for granted!
Hats off to the Dunbar Instructional Coach Makini Coleman, Media Specialist Tomiko Cobb and Principal Karen Brown Collier for encouraging the Dunbar Bulldogs to read!
