Raising Readers in Elmbrook

Raising Readers in Elmbrook

Research has proven that family involvement is the number one predictor of early reading success and future academic achievement. The School District of Elmbrook seeks to partner with families in our community who are interested in developing the skills and knowledge necessary to raise a young reader by offering a series of workshops taught by Elmbrook reading specialists and classroom teachers.

Past workshops have covered topics of playing with letters and sounds and the power of reading aloud to children.

For planning purposes, please RSVP by filling out the form below.

If you would like additional information please contact Justin Goffard at goffardj@elmbrookschools.org.
