Who’s Peter Gzowski?

Next week we celebrate the 2014 NWT PGI for Literacy.  PGI stands for Peter Gzowski Invitational. 

I urge you to come out to PGI events next week because we believe there’s fun in fundraising.

On Monday, October 6, at 6 pm enjoy free food and entertainment at the Premier’s Feast at the Chief Drygeese Centre, in Dettah.  Tuesday and Wednesday, October 7 and 8, at 7 pm there will be two different PGI Concerts for Literacy at the Northern Arts and Cultural Centre.

What I loved and learned this summer at the Literacy Council

Summer studentIt’s just a few weeks until the end of the summer and the end of my time working as a summer student at the NWT Literacy Council. 

I love making connections with people, and this job offers many opportunities to do this.  I’ve interacted with the public at community events and workshops promoting all types of literacy.

Don't let the summer slide

School’s out and the summer slide starts! 

Summer slide?  It's not a new game, nor something you find in a playground.  It's the brain-drain that happens during the holiday months when kids are out of class.  Academic skills tend to slip away during the summer if students aren't actively engaged in learning.  Math, spelling, and reading skills suffer the most.
