I am pleased to announce that Governor Baker has issued a Proclamation declaring November 2015 as Family Literacy Month. This year, the 19th year Massachusetts is celebrating the role families play in fostering children's literacy, we continue to highlight how parents, schools, and community partners support children in the development of literacy skills that ensure reading proficiency and academic success.
Schools, libraries, adult learning centers, early education and care programs, parent support programs, social service agencies, and businesses across the state provide organized family activities during November, including storytelling, family math nights, readings by authors and community leaders, interactive sing-a-longs, and creating books and bookmarks. I encourage you to share this information with your staff and community partners and take advantage of the resources mentioned below.
