Braille is an important key to literacy. It allows for the enjoyment of reading, leads to school success, and opens the doors to future employment. Come celebrate Braille literacy with a day filled with fun, competition, learning, prizes, and enjoyment! In addition, bring in Braille books you no longer read for the Braille book exchange.
Students who read Braille in grades Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 12 are invited to participate in the Maryland Regional Braille Challenge reading and writing contests. Parents are invited to participate in workshop while students are taking the tests. Teachers and staff are invited to assist with test proctoring and scoring and helping to facilitate the day.
