Día @ Cal State Fullerton: Home

Online guide to support and showcase Día de los Niños/Día de los Libros (Children's Day/Book Day) programming at Cal State Fullerton

Día @ Cal State Fullerton April 18, 2014 at CSUF's Children's Center

In partnership with the ASI Children's Center, and student clubs such as CASSA and the Rotaract Club of CSUF, the Pollak Library holds every spring the celebration of Children's Day. This student initiated event was inspired by the Día de los Niños/Día de los Libros (Children's Day/Book Day), a nation-wide reading initiative that emphasizes the importance of literacy for children of all linguistic and cultural backgrounds. Students in the Child and Adolescent Studies Student Association (CASSA) student organization and the Rotaract Club, create collaborative bridges with the Children’s Center, the Fullerton Public Library, the Department of Elementary and Bilingual Education, and the Pollak Library to make this event happen!

More than 30 children, along with 19 parents/caregivers took part in the literacy and art making fun! We’re so proud of our awesome Titan future teachers and their can-do enthusiasm and efforts to put theory into practice! Way to go ladies!

Special thanks to community collaborators who generously gave their time and resources to make this event happen: Sonia Nuñez, Assistant Director Children's Center and Janine Jacobs, Children's Librarian Fullerton Public Library.

They put into practice skills they have learned in the teaching credential program, and demonstrated great commitment to family/community literacy and partnerships. We look forward to many years of Dia collaboration with the Library and the Children's Center.”
