Join District 2 Bernalillo County Commissioner Art De La Cruz and District 5 Commissioner Wayne Johnson on Friday as they attend Pajama Reading Parties to celebrate Summer Learning Day at Mission Avenue Elementary and Adobe Acres Elementary.
The events at Mission Avenue Elementary and Adobe Acres Elementary are being sponsored by Bernalillo County Parks and Recreation and New Mexico PBS to emphasize the importance of continuing the learning process throughout the summer months.
Keeping children’s brains active helps close the achievement gap and supports healthy development in communities all across the country. The pajama parties in Bernalillo County are two of many such events planned nationwide by the National Summer Learning Association. Read more about the program here.
Kids, county staff - and maybe even the commissioners – will wear their pajamas for the reading party. Friday’s event will go from 1 to 2:30 p.m at Mission Elementary, 725 Mission Avenue, as Commissioner De La Cruz and storyteller Susi Wolf read to children in the county’s Summer Recreation Program.
Then, Commissioner Johnson will join storyteller Mary Saunders at Adobe Acres, 1724 Camino Del Valle SW, from 3 to 4 p.m. to read to children in the county’s Summer Aftercare Program.
Join us for a day of educational fun!
