Family Literacy Program

As a part of the vital Outreach at St. John’s, the Family Literacy program became a part of the weekly activities in the Parish House during the tenure of the Rev. Laura Myhr in the 1990’s.  The Family Literacy at MTCC is a program that applies to all families and all literacy activities that take place within the family.   It addresses literacy strengths and needs while promoting adults’ involvement in children’s education, recognizing adults as a powerful influence on children’ academic success.  The program provides both parent initiated and child initiated activities to support development of those relationships and to increase the motivation to learn for both adult and child.
Activities include:

  • PACT – Interactive literacy activities between parents and their children
  • Family and Community Parenting - Education for parents to facilitate children’s learning and becoming full partners in their education.
  • Adult Literacy ABE, ASE, or ELA - Parent literacy training that leads to economic self-sufficiency and meets adults’ stated goals.
  • Child Literacy – Age appropriate education to prepare children for success in school and life.
