Literacy Nights for K-5 Families

Please join the District 65 team for a conversation about literacy instruction in kindergarten through fifth grade. During our time together, we will focus on:

  • Share hopes and aspirations for students as it relates to literacy instruction
  • React to the District’s Draft Vision for Equitable Literacy Instruction
  • Understand where the district is heading to ensure all of our students are equipped with the skills to become strong readers and writers
  • Learn more behind “the why” for the future adoption of new instructional materials in monolingual classrooms


Sessions will include an opportunity for discussion and questions. We are hosting several options so that our families can choose the one that is most convenient (content will remain the same across sessions).

Please note that this conversation applies most directly to families of students in monolingual K-5 grade classrooms; however, all are welcome to attend. Spanish interpretation will be provided at the March 1 webinar.

Thank you! 

Shyla Kinhal
Director of Literacy
