"RUBY AND ROSE LITERACY PROGRAM":

The goal of the Ruby and Rose Books Aloud Program is to:

  •  Increase students access to a wide range of high-quality books

  • Help build personal libraries for children all school year long

  • Encourage children to develop a love of reading

  • Engage parents in reading to their children through an at-home library

  • Improve children’s language skills and academic vocabulary (e.g. critical to understanding concepts and content in subject areas).

4K is an important and challenging year for reading. Over the past several years, your child has been solidifying foundational skills like decoding and fluency. With hard work and the help of Ruby and Rose Literacy Program, we hope to make this possible.

We have given away over 5,000 books to 4K and 5K students in Dillon County to start a "Personal At Home Library ".
