West Families,

We are excited to have our students participate in a virtual reading event on Tuesday, January 18th.

Great Lakes Credit Union (GLCU)  and United Way of Lake County are bringing a MLK Reading Event to read books to students about Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The chosen books will highlight MLK's work on equity, diversity and civil rights. GLCU will provide a total of 16 volunteers, two of which will be reading in Spanish to make sure everyone has an equal opportunity to learn and enjoy the day’s event. All children from third through fifth grades will be participating.

Lastly, both organizations will be sending students home with a book they can read with their families so they can continue to learn and grow." Books include "Let the Children March," by Monica Clark-Robinson; "A Place to Land," by Barry Wittenstein; "My Daddy, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.," by Martin Luther King III; and "Happy Birthday, Martin Luther King," by Jean Marzollo.
