Typically, the halls and classrooms at Centura College Chesapeake are filled with sights and sounds of our adult students, dedicated to learning the skills needed to move forward in their search for careers. On Friday, June 1st, the campus grounds were bustling with a slightly younger crowd, as Centura Chesapeake held its Children’s Literacy Day.
More than 100 children and their families gathered at the campus for a day full of activities. Children were treated to story time with some of their favorite cartoon characters like Belle and Spiderman. Each child was offered free pizza and ice cream, along with face painting, and bounce houses. The local fire department stopped by (not to put out any fires) and the children were able to get up close and personal to a fire engine.
Children’s Literacy Day was a big hit, with each child leaving with smiles on their faces and a gift bag filled with items to celebrate reading. This event was just another example of how Centura strives to interact with our surrounding communities and help promote education to both current and future generations of students.
