Birth to Books Parent Academy Meetings

Telfair County Schools works directly with Telfair County Family Connection to implement the Birth to Books Parent Academy meetings.  These meetings are held quarterly and are designed to teach parents of children (ages 0-5) strategies for increasing language nutrition in the home.  Parent Academy meetings will be held on January 28 and March 4, 2019, at 6:00 p.m. in the Telfair County Elementary School Gym.  Door prizes, free books, and a meal will be available for families attending the event.  Parents are also encouraged to register children under age five for Ferst Readers.  Ferst Readers will send a children's book each month to the child's home at no cost to the family.  This program is made available to Telfair County children under age five by generous donations from local educators, organizations and citizens, as well as grant funds.
