Land O'Lakes High plans second annual Literacy Through the Arts event

Land O'Lakes High will host its second Literacy Through the Arts event Thursday evening. Members of the community, young and old alike, are welcome to come out and get a little taste of what students and faculty have to offer.

Take a turn in the Literacy Games, a take-off on the popular teen read Hunger Games by Susan Collins, or enjoy some French and German language activities.

Drama, band and American Sign Language students will offer literacy-based performances, and students in the culinary academy will put on cooking demonstrations.

Looking to find something to hang on your wall or maybe a gift for the reader in your life? Check out the student art show and sale, or stock up on some new reads at the mobile book fair, where Land O'Lakes High teacher David Berger will be on hand to sign his self-published book, Task Force: GAEA.
