Welcome to
"Literacy Link"!  Our goal is to provide families with a multitude of wonderful literacy resources that you can share with your children.  We envision this site being used to support and expand literacy learning that occurs everyday in our  elementary schools.  We hope you find this to be a valuable resource as you watch your children grow as readers, writers, listeners, speakers and thinkers.  Ultimately, we hope all children will realize that reading brings you pleasure and knowledge! Thank you for your support as we endeavor to create strong, independent literacy learners!

"...A literate person is one who, throughout life, deepens his/her knowledge and develops his/her potential through
  • Reading and writing
  • Listening and viewing
  • Speaking and presenting
  • Thinking critically, creating and innovating
A literate person deciphers meaning and expresses ideas through a range of media. 

A literate person effectively communicates his/her insight and/or knowledge.

A literate person transfers learning to new situations in his/her own life and in the life of the community and the world."
