When you talk, read, play and engage in literacy activities with your children, you provide a solid foundation in language. You encourage early literacy that is essential to their success.
Family Literacy Day is a national initiative that raises awareness of the importance of reading and engaging in literacy-related activities as a family. Students from MacEwan University’s Golden Key Chapter work with the Centre for Family Literacy to host the 9th annual Family Literacy Carnival.
Experience fun, interactive literacy activities created to engage readers, pre-readers and their families in healthy learning. Over 700,000 adult Albertans struggle with literacy. Join us as we change those statistics!
Guests will leave with great ideas on how to make literacy a fun part of a daily routine. Those who register will be entered to win a selection of children's books.
Cost to attend is free, however, registration via Eventbrite is required. Event will be delivered online via Zoom.
The Golden Key chapter at MacEwan University believes in excellence and aligns all initiatives with academics, leadership and service. On November 16, 2010, MacEwan University was chartered the 393rd Golden Key chapter worldwide and the 19th in Canada. Members focus on community service, networking events and reaching out to make connections with the local community and the entire university student body. We welcome student members who are in the top 15 per cent of their class.
We acknowledge that the land on which we gather in Treaty Six Territory is the traditional gathering place for many Indigenous people. We honour and respect the history, languages, ceremonies and culture of the First Nations, Métis and Inuit who call this territory home.
