On April 24-28, childcare centers all over the Conyers/Rockdale area will celebrate Hands on Literacy Week to encourage reading. Teaching programs this week will be geared toward encouraging young children to read through activities such as crafts, story-telling, and projects. A cross-section of the community including parents, grandparents and community leaders will come in to read to the children during this week’s celebration.

The celebration will end with the Hands On Literacy Parade in Olde Town Conyers on Friday at approximately 10 a.m. Children dressed as their favorite book characters will walk down Main Street to Center Street with the Rockdale County High School drum line leading the parade of children as on-lookers cheer from the sidelines.

Brenda Smith, Rockdale Head Start family advocate, says the celebration highlights the efforts Head Start carries out year-round to help families understand the importance of literacy at an early age.

The event coincides with National Week of the Young Child, an annual celebration sponsored by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC).
