Literacy Day

Now in its eleventh year, Literacy Day is an interactive and immersive program designed to utilize our rich landscape as a secondary classroom where students can learn in ANSG’s lush tropical setting. This one of a kind program provides more than 300 Title I students with new and creative approaches to reading and the written word while exploring the two-acre Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens. Nationally recognized educators, authors and illustrators participate in the event, joining local law enforcement officials, librarians, musicians and artists. Children take part in interactive story making, poetry, visual and performing arts activities designed to inspire a love of reading, writing, and a desire to embrace the power of literacy.

Literacy Day is made possible by the generosity of Cynthia Sulzberger.

Teachers and students alike voted it their favorite school visit and can’t wait to return next year.

“Thank you for an absolutely fabulous field trip! In my 16 years of teaching, I believe it is the best I have ever had the pleasure of attending.  All staff and students agree with me on that! Kudos to you and all participating who made Literacy Day at the Ann Norton Sculpture Garden a HUGE success! We can’t wait until next year! “
