Reading opens up our imagination, exposes us to the unknown, builds our vocabulary, and sparks creativity.
February 28th – March 14th
Over the two-plus weeks, our students, parents, faculty, staff, and the entire community will reinforce their commitment to literacy and the power of books by reading each and every day. In addition, three celebration events – one at each Christopher House location: Belmont Cragin, Logan Square, and Uptown – will give families books to build at-home libraries, a Read-A-Thon kit, and fun literacy activities to reignite their commitment to reading.
