Each station will last for approximately 10 minutes, ensuring optimal learning and enjoyment.

- 5:15 to 5:30 PM – Registration & Check-in
- 5:30 to 6:00 PM – Pizza & Drinks
- 6:00 to 7:30 PM – Literary Rotations
“As an educator with a deep passion for teaching literacy, I am thrilled to host this event for a second year in a row,” stated Morgan Dugan, Assistant Professor of Early Childhood Education. “At our gathering, we will explore the transformative power of literacy and how it can be applied to real-life experiences. I am excited to share how my students are not only learning in the classroom but also applying their newfound knowledge to make a tangible impact in their lives and communities.”
All children will be given a book by the KSLA (Keystone State Literacy Association) along with a prize bag for attending the event. All parents or guardians must attend the event with their child.
