Embracing the Joy of Reading at Home with New World’s Reading Initiative

Updated: May 20

Written By: Meredith Daniels, Curriculum and Instruction Specialist

The New World’s Reading Initiative, sponsored by the Florida Department of Education and the University of Florida Lastinger Center, is dedicated to enhancing literacy skills among families through home-based reading activities. As part of this initiative, free books and parent workshops are provided to support this endeavor. UCP has been privileged to collaborate with the NWRI during the 23-24 school year, empowering our parents and enriching their home libraries in the process.


Parents of our Pine Hills students taking part in a workshop on reading at home with Carell Dorce from the Children’s Literacy Initiative.

The participating schools spearheaded the event, ensuring an enjoyable and engaging evening for all. The success of this event underscores our enthusiasm for ongoing collaboration with the New World’s Reading Initiative. We look forward to bringing this valuable event to UCP in the 2024-2025 school year.
