In order to promote literacy for all ages, Voigt hosted its annual Literacy Night on December 1st. To coincide with the Book Fair, activities were Pirate-themed for all ages. We also had many guest readers, including professional soccer player Leone Cruz who is a Round Rock High School alumni and has played for Real Salt Lake, Austin Aztex, and San Antonio Scorpions.
Literacy Night is always a great night of learning at Voigt. Research shows that children not reading at grade level by the end of 3rd grade are four times more likely to drop out of school. We encourage families to do some of the activities learned at Literacy Night at home with their children and to read with their children on a daily basis.
If you need ideas for you and your child/children to practice at home, your child’s teacher would gladly help you out.
