What would Christmas be without literacy?

What do teachers, nurses, firefighters, and Santa Claus all have in common?  They will be supporting the A to Z Literacy Movement on December 9th at Good Shepherd Hospital in Barrington from 6-8.

After Santa arrives at the hospital aboard a fire truck, a local fire-fighter will read “Twas the Night Before Christmas” reminding all of us of the importance of literacy when celebrating our holidays.  Santa will pose for pictures with children while others make crafts and munch on goodies. Please join the cause to increase literacy by bringing a gently used book to donate, purchasing a book bag, or purchasing a book plate at the backward book fair.  There is no better way to begin the holiday season than by giving. We hope to see you there!
