Bleckley County Primary School held their second annual literarcy kickoff event Thursday afternoon. Designed to promote reading and get parents involved with reading to their children, it offered a variety of reading and literacy-based activities. Children could play word games, shop at the book fair, as well as win books at the Book Walk.
Assistant Principal Andrea Williams said it was important to "create a spark for reading" in children that would carry them through life. The school plans to hold a celebration of Dr. Seus' birthday in March.
