TLU to host Reading Round Up for grades K-5th grades
Posted on 1/26/2018 7:44:00 AM.

(Seguin) -- TLU is inviting local kids over this Saturday for an afternoon of books, treats and plenty of fun. Ashlie Ford, TLU's director of marketing and communications, says Texas Lutheran University is excited about hosting the children during this weekend's free Reading Round Up.

"We'll be hosting a Reading Round Up. This has been a free literacy event for grades k through five. It's going to be in Tschoepe Hall here on our campus. It's going to be fun activities, treats and participants will receive free books. It's a great way for our students to connect with children and their parents and also raise awareness on the importance of reading and literacy," said Ford.

Ford says future educators will be the ones working one on one with the children. She says the students belong to TLU's Student Education Association.

"That's out of our education department. So these are students that are majoring in education and want to become teachers and pursue those types of areas. Once again, it's just a wonderful way for them to interact with children and also for children to come to a college campus and learn about the importance of reading," said Ford.

The Reading Round Up is free and will be held from 1 to 4 p. m. Saturday at TLU's Tschoepe Hall. Parents are required to stay with their children during the event.
