Reading Jamboree

Saturday, Feb. 2, Dayton Public Schools will host the 5th (?) annual Reading Jamboree at Sinclair Community College, Building 12, from 10 am to 3 pm. This is truly an amazing event, jam-packed with activities for kids, opportunities to meet with national and local authors of children's books, and participation by more than 13 local organizations (Cox Arboretum, Booneshoft, and others). There will be musical performances throughout the day featuring students and DCDC2 will perform at noon. Lunch is provided. There are free books and prizes for kids, and Scholastic is holding a Book Fair. I have gone every year, and every year it is better. The reason for the event is to promote reading and by the reaction of the kids and their parents, it does just that. It is a great day out for families, whether or not your kids attend DPS. For further information, please call 542-3527.
