It is the time of year to get together
with family and friends and think about the past year and
plan for the future. As we prepare for the year ahead, we
look forward to seeing you and working with you. All the
teachers at the Pearson Adult Learning Centre wish you and
your families the very best for the holidays and for the New
When planning for the coming year, a date
that you should mark on your calendar is January 27th. This
is National Family Literacy Day. All across Canada people
will be celebrating literacy and families.
At the PALC, we promote education for
life-long learning. Family Literacy Day is also interested
in celebrating and encouraging life-long learning by
focusing on the importance of reading for the whole family.
In British Columbia, we will celebrate by having a Family
Literacy Week, from January 26th to February 1st.

events in your community, check out the website at
