International Literacy Day takes place on September 8, 2016. Students and staff across Horizon School Division have marked this day by sharing in their love of reading and promoting literacy as the foundation for future success.

Horizon's Director of Education, Kevin Garinger, recently sat down with 107.5 Bolt FM to discuss literacy and the importance of reading. Click here to find the article and listen to audio from that interview.

To celebrate student success in literacy this past year, Horizon put together a brochure, which includes student reading level data and highlights Horizon's work to support students and staff. This brochure has gone home to parents/caregivers across Horizon and a pdf version can be found here.
