FEBRUARY 2023

Skokie School District 73.5 will celebrate literacy throughout the month of February. Students, teachers, and the community are invited to participate in different literacy activities hosted by our schools and district.

Literacy Month will start with World Read Aloud Day on February 1st and conclude with special theme days during Read Across America Week at the end of the month. To help you prepare, mark your calendars for our District-wide Dress as your Favorite Book Character Day on Thursday, March 2nd!
