Crown Point Elementary students celebrated literacy week Jan. 23 – 27 at their school. Students and teachers participated in various reading activities throughout the week. They read numerous books, showed off their language skills, and paraded the hallways displaying their favorite book characters.
On Thursday, Crown Point opened its doors to community readers, including some from Mandarin United Methodist Church, Junior Achievement of North Florida, Fire Station 51, Chick-fil-A Mandarin, 101.5 Radio, State Farm, Voyage Chiropractic, Dawn Lopez with Action News, JSO, Mandarin Public Library, Duval County Public Schools executives and police department, ESOL department, school volunteers, and friends and family of school staff. These community readers read authentic literature and engaged in literacy discussions with students in every classroom.
