Arlington Heights Literacy Rally Set for October 29

Fort Worth, Texas - Arlington Heights High School will host a free Literacy Rally that promises fun for the students and families of Arlington Heights High School and the entire Fort Worth community. This free rally will be held October 29 at the school and will include live performances, free books, and other free activities for attendees of all ages. There will be booths with special story themes, and performances will include choir and other musical groups.

The rally is designed to promote literacy for all students by providing free books and fun activities centered on reading. This year’s event theme is “Storybook.” This rally will focus on pre-school through third grade students. This focus is aligned with 100 X 25FWTX, the District’s early literacy initiative with a goal to ensure 100% of third-grade students are reading at or above grade level by the year 2025.  100 X 25FWTX will ensure all children in Fort Worth are prepared for college, career and community leadership. This cradle-to-career strategy will put childhood literacy front and center and align the resources of the Fort Worth ISD with the city’s business sector, city leaders, higher education, non-profit organizations, the faith-based community as well as educators and parents.

Childhood literacy can determine success in all subjects, including math and science. Everyone has a part to play in children’s literacy and Arlington Heights High School welcomes all ages and families to attend the rally.
