A cornerstone of the Eli’s House holistic approach to literacy is to regularly expose children to the extraordinary experiences that can be found in a book, a piece of music, a dance, or another art form. Our innovative Speaker Series does just that for the children of Port Salerno Elementary School in Stuart, FL. By offering children these magical, once-in-a-lifetime opportunities, we are creating a belief that school is transformative and an important, vibrant part of the community.
Held in the classroom or in school assemblies, the monthly series introduces children to accomplished authors, poets, singers/songwriters and performers. By sharing their talents and personal stories in an intimate and familiar setting, these unique and creative adults help young learners discover the rich and rewarding world of the arts, and spark the desire to read, learn and create.
