AES Recipient of 2017-2018 Year of the Book Grant

Ashland Elementary School is the recipient of a
2017-2018 Year of the Book Grant!


This grant will enable us to create a culture of literacy in both the school and wider community!

Our year-long celebration of literacy begins with a Kick-Off Event on August 29th, the first Wed. of school.

The remainder of the school year will be filled with book-giveaways, picture book artist presentations, author presentations, writers in residency, and more!

One of the goals of this program is to help parents and caregivers become increasingly engaged in their children’s literacy experiences.  To this end we hope all parents/caregivers will sign CLiF’s Read to Me contract. Remember, sharing books with your child can be as simple as talking through the illustrations together!
