  • “Community Reads!” is an award-winning family and community engagement website connecting literacy lessons in the elementary classroom with activities and conversations beyond the school day. By continuing literacy-based activities and conversations at home, families help reinforce and practice concepts learned in class.  The initiative has been recognized with an 'Award of Distinction' from the Florida Public Relations Association (FPRA), a “Medallion Award” from the Sunshine State School Public Relations Association (SUNSPRA), and a 'Golden Achievement' award from the National School Public Relations Association (NSPRA).


    For more information related to standards-based reading and writing lessons happening in the classroom each month, just “LOOK FOR THE BOOK” on the Marion County Public School’s website and choose your child’s grade level.
