Cedarville, Ohio-Students from Cedarville University's "Diagnostics and Remedial Reading" class are hoping to take local families to the next level of literacy. They are leading a Family Literacy Night in the Cedar Cliff Elementary School gymnasium on Monday, Apr. 30 from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. The theme, in honor of the famed children's author Dr. Seuss, is "Oh, the Places You'll Go."

Literacy Night is designed for Cedar Cliff students in grades 1-5 and their parents. Families will be able to engage in entertaining and educational activities that show the importance of literacy in the home. "I think that it will be a great opportunity for the Cedarville community to learn some great reading techniques to improve literacy," said Olivia Short, one of the Cedarville University students involved with Literacy Night.

Parents who attend will receive a free take-home packet. Inside are resourceful strategies and techniques they can use to help improve their children's reading skills.

Cedarville University students involved in the Literacy Night project have remarked that they appreciate the opportunity to work with the community and help improve reading skills.
