Literacy weaves through all aspects of family and community life. It all begins at home.
When you talk, read, play and engage in literacy activities with your children, you provide a solid foundation in language. You encourage early literacy, and that’s 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 8th 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 a free book and great ideas on how to make literacy a fun part of your daily routine.
Innovative station themes include:
Science and Space
Meditation and Mindfulness
Play and Learn
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 and honorary members who include recent inductees: President Dr. Saucier and School of Business Dean, Dr. Wanda Costen.
