Members of the Arizona Department of Education’s communications team spent Saturday morning (September 30, 2017) promoting the importance of reading at Camino al Exito Education Fair. Jointly sponsored by Expect More Arizona, Univision Arizona, and Helios Education Foundation for the sixth year in a row, the Spanish-language fair is held each year on the campus of Phoenix College in downtown Phoenix.
ADE’s focus for this, it’s second year participating, was it’s new Read 20 AZ campaign. The campaign’s purpose is to raise awareness of the need for children of all ages to read (or be read to) at least twenty minutes each day. One ADE staff member even helped a few of the children at the fair meet that goal by holding mini-storytimes at the booth.
