RGEC's Luminarias for Literacy Event Successful!!!
Thank you parents and families for attending our 2014 Lights On Afterschool Event! This year our event was held at Gateway Park on Bridge and Isleta, in the South Valley of Albuquerque. The park and scenery was beautiful. No matter where you stood a perfect view of all the walkways lit up with luminarias was marvelously displayed. This year we added a new component to our program, a Student Showcase which was a big hit! Many young students all from different RGEC sites were selected to read their stories from their luminarias to all the parents and families in attendance. The students were very excited to read their stories out loud, and were also excited about receiving a little prize for their braveness and participation. The Student Showcase was a huge success which we plan to continue in the future.
RGEC believes in continuously promoting literacy and the Lights On Afterschool event is one of the many ways that RGEC achieves this goal. We encourage students to always read and write, the luminaria activity of drawing a picture and writing a story on the luminaria bag provided a great backdrop and a great way to get students motivated. Fun was had by all who attended the event. Families who attended the event were so engaged with their students and excited to walk throughout the park in search of their child's luminaria.
We thank you all for attending our Lights On Afterschool event. Each year we will strive to move the program around the City to ensure all families get a chance to experience Lights on Afterschool in their respective communities. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to provide a safe and fun environment for your children in RGEC's before and after school programs.
