The frost may not be on the pumpkin quite yet, but it's still HARVEST FESTIVAL TIME!
If you are around tomorrow, Saturday 11 Sept., please stop at the World of Words tent, near the library. The tent is a collaboration between LCC, the library, and Animal Friends, and focuses on the importance of early literacy and language skills. Animal Friends is providing Reading with Rover dogs and handlers, the library is providing storytellers, and LCC is providing expert advice from our Academic and Speech departments on developmental milestones parents should be aware of in their children's language acquisition. All three organizations will have information about their services to distribute as well. It should be a fun time, and I'm really excited and proud of the collaborative effort that went into The World of Words tent.
I hope you'll stop by and say hello--the dogs, kids, storytellers, teachers, and speech pathologists will be there from 10 am to 3 pm!
