The Southwood School staff strives to instill the love of reading and writing in all of our students. We work hard at school to encourage and support every student to strengthen this love.  Research has shown that parents/guardians can have a significant impact on their children’s literacy development. Children who have opportunities to read and write at home with their parents/guardians can build positive attitudes toward language.  Home, alongside the school, is where a child’s love of reading can grow.
