MLK Holiday - No School

The Martin Luther King Jr. holiday on Jan. 20, 2020, marks the 25th anniversary of the day of service that celebrates the Civil Rights leader’s life and legacy. Observed each year on the third Monday in January as “a day on, not a day off,” MLK Day is the only federal holiday designated as a national day of service to encourage all Americans to volunteer to improve their communities. We hope our students take a moment today to serve at home or in our community.

Gulf Coast Children's Book Festival

On Thursday, March 26, 2020, the Boys & Girls Clubs of South Alabama will host our 2020 Gulf Coast Children’s Book Festival from 9:00 – 1:00 at The Grounds in Mobile. We are inviting all elementary schools grades PK-5 to join us for our festival. We would love your support and encouragement for our festival by attending the Gulf Coast Children’s Book Festival. Our 2019 festival put over 7000 books into the hands of over 3000 children who attended. Forty-three exhibitors, five storyteller stages, two entertainment stages and a host of costumed book characters made for an exciting day for our children. We have invited children in Grades K-5 from public schools, private schools, home schooled children and the general public. We have extended the invitation to all areas of Mobile County, Baldwin County, and the Mississippi and Florida Gulf Coast areas. We have over 1600 already registered for our festival. Admission is free for all. Each child that attends will receive a registration bag and at least one free book. We hope your school will join us for the 2020 Gulf Coast Children’s Book Festival. Our biggest goal for the festival is to spark an excitement for reading in our children. Your participation will help make that possible. We have attached an information and registration packet. Thank you very much. We hope you join us on March 26 at The Grounds in Mobile.
