During Love of Reading Week, we are celebrating the birthday of one of the most-loved children’s authors in recent memory—Theodor Seuss Geisel, better known as Dr. Seuss.

Participation is $5.

This week, February 8 – 12, 2016, schools and libraries all over the country are celebrating Love of Reading week.

Literacy and literacy education remain at the forefront of parent and teacher concerns. In our increasingly digital world, literacy is an indispensable commodity. Being able to read and write fluently is vital to participation and success in the current state of our world. Between text, email, and the time we all spend online, much of the information we consume is in print, so strong reading skills are a must for success today and in the future.
We believe that high-quality early childhood education is essential for a strong academic foundation that advocates lifelong learning.
Full-day kindergarten programs:
- allow youngsters to develop strong academic, social, and emotional skills
- produce better reading and math skills than half-day programs
- yield students with higher retention and lower dropout rates throughout their academic careers
That’s why we offer FREE all-day kindergarten, plus free before- and after-school care.

Most parents today are well-aware of the studies showing that children lose knowledge and skills over long breaks from school. The holidays are a time of fun and relaxation for most, but, with a little planning, you might just be able to halt the loss of some of those skills and engage your children in inspiring ways.

Heritage Elementary, your Glendale charter school, is now accepting elementary and pre-school referrals for January 2016.
