Cariboo Chilcotin Partners for Literacy Celebrates Family Literacy Week – 100 Mile House Free Press

Regardless of our age, literacy skills can impact our daily lives.

From employment to citizenship, from communication to health and wellness, maintaining strong literacy skills is essential for all walks of life.

Next week, Cariboo Chilcotin Partners for Literacy Society will celebrate Family Literacy Week, working with local service providers, schools, families and businesses.

The theme for this year’s Family Literacy Week is “Let’s Connect – Care, Play & Listen”.

As we approach our third year of navigating the COVID-19 pandemic, it is more important than ever to find ways to connect with our children, friends and communities in positive and meaningful ways.

When families connect, they build strong relationships, build trust, and support children’s social, emotional, and physical health.

Additionally, upgrading our technology skills to enable us to go online safely and learning ways to accurately understand information on topics such as vaccinations and other health alerts has been essential. throughout the pandemic.

To celebrate Family Literacy Week and connect with our children, CCPL is hosting an online contest this month to encourage families to use literacy at home in their daily activities.

Visit our Facebook page – Cariboo Chilcotin Partners for Literacy – to play the game and enter to win great prizes.

On January 27, several special “Reach-a-Reader” articles will be published in the Free press highlighting our services and programs and how Cariboo residents can achieve their learning goals.

Staff members, along with special volunteers, will be out in the community selling copies of the Free press to raise funds for CCPL programs and services.

Please consider supporting this important Family Literacy Week initiative by purchasing a copy of the newspaper by donation next Thursday, and remember that improving our literacy skills is a lifetime commitment with far-reaching benefits. .
