Beacon hosts a special literacy program after school on Wednesdays at Hackett Elementary. Join us for this fun opportunity to empower children ages 5-11 to read, comprehend, and explore their creative writing skills. We gather in the library, hear a story read aloud to all participants, and then split up into small groups to give children specialized attention with reading and/or writing prompts that are silly, imaginative, fun, and/or reflective. No special writing skills needed--just a willingness to encourage children as they listen to, read, and write stories.

Weekly, biweekly, and monthly opportunities available.
