GPA Partners with Reading Connections to Boost Literacy
Free reading classes will be offered across the county
Greensboro, N.C. – Guilford Parent Academy (GPA) is partnering with Reading Connections and Guilford County Partnership for Children to offer free reading classes across the district.
The Family Literacy Program will include classes for adults and children, a new book each week and a free dinner at each class. Additionally, families that attend 70 percent of the class will receive $50.
“Strong readers make strong learners, so we are excited to offer parents and caregivers an opportunity to support their child’s education while also improving their own literacy skills,” said Kimberly Funderburk, director of GPA. “We hope families will take advantage of these free classes.”
All programs take place from 5 p.m. until 8 p.m.
