Baraboo event to foster early literacy

August 2, 2018 by  

A Baraboo event will both honor those who work to improve literacy skills in the state, and provide a collaborative environment for them to share best practices with others in the field.

This will be the annual meeting for Reach Out and Read, which is a group that engages educators and families to improve literacy levels, and it will include presentations, exhibits, group discussions, and other activities. It is open to anyone who works in the field, and scholarships may be available for those who have trouble meeting the registration fee.

Along with the networking, seminars and other sessions, each attendee will receive a book and have their name entered to win a book pack they can use in their clinic. There will also be displays set up by both All About Books and Books4School, and continuing CME credits may be available for those who qualify.

This daylong symposium will be held in the Glacier Canyon Conference Center, which can be found at 45 Hillman Road in Wisconsin Dells. Local print shops can be counted upon to supply presentation folders, brochures, promotional pens, and other branded swag for this sort of function.

The Reach Out and Read Wisconsin Annual Meeting has been planned for October 5. More information about the day, and also the program itself, can be found on the Children’s Health Alliance of Wisconsin website.
