Vita Education Services held “Power of Moms” year-end celebrations at its two Family Literacy class locations in Centennial and Bristol Township school districts. On June 10, over 100 people attended the celebration held at William Tennent High School in Warminster. On June 12, over 80 people celebrated at FDR Middle School in Bristol.
The “Power of Moms” theme is in recognition of the research findings that “a mother’s literacy level is the greatest predictor of a child’s success in school.”
Each program included speeches by students, the presentation of attendance and achievement certificates, an “around the world feast” prepared by the students, and a “Family Fun” Art Show featuring posters made by the families in Vita’s Family Literacy programs.
Family Literacy is a program to assist English as a Second Language parents in gaining the literacy and parenting skills they need to become full partners in the educational development of their young children through family-centered education programming.
