COME JOIN US THIS WEEK TO CELEBRATE CHILDREN AND BILINGUAL LITERACY

The Museum’s event will focus on enriching your life with the value of bilingual literacy. The Museum’s Para los niños program helps Spanish-speaking parents get involved in their children’s education by offering bilingual books and educational resources free of charge. ON-GOING EVENTS:•Pocket Full of Letters: Make a construction paper pouch at Junktion. Fill the pouch with letter cut outs. Take your pocket full of letters with you.
