California State University, Stanislaus Department of Education Associate Professor Mary Borba hands a “literacy box” to Wakefield student Andres Gonzalez.


POSTED December 16, 2011 9:04 p.m.

California State University, Stanislaus Department of Education students, faculty and families donated items to make literacy boxes, which included books, paper, pens, pencils, crayons, rulers, glue, erasers and puzzles. Department of Education Associate Professor Mary Borba and colleague Anne Weisenberg handed out about 108 literacy boxes to Wakefield students in an effort to promote reading and writing over the holiday break. Both Borba and Deisenberg encouraged the students to play school during the break.

“Two weeks without reading and writing is a long time and students need to keep up their skills so they don’t fall back over the break,” said Borba.
