Celebrate Literacy Week "Believe in Your Shelf"

The Martin County School District will join other districts throughout the state in participating in “Celebrate Literacy Week, Florida!” from January 22-26, 2024. This event is an annual celebration designed to raise awareness about the importance of reading and to inspire students and families to make reading part of their daily routines.

This year’s theme, created by the Florida Department of Education, is “Believe in Your Shelf, Building Resiliency Through Reading.” Schools have scheduled several daily activities designed to help students build confidence in their reading skills.

From schoolwide read-aloud sessions and family literacy nights to bookmark decorating contests and beloved book characters coming to life, our schools have something planned for every learner! Explore what is in store for our students all week at each of the District’s 12 elementary schools, five middle schools and three comprehensive high schools:
