Blades Elementary School Named a 2019 'Superstars in Education' Winner

The Delaware State Chamber of Commerce and its affiliate, The Partnership, Inc., are pleased to announce the 2019 Superstars in Education award winners, which include Blades Elementary School for its Latino Family Literacy Project (LFLP). The Latino Family Literacy Project (LFLP) supports culturally responsive teaching practices and additive bilingualism by developing family reading routines. It builds community and cultural exchange among Latino families and bridges connections between home and school. There are three components to the program: literacy,
connections, and community, that focus on the value and benefit of family reading routines, regardless of language. Bilingual texts are shared each week with families through a lending library system. Trained educators work with adult family members, creating a shared family experience during which both parents and school age children learn English vocabulary together.

While many go through the rigorous application process, only a handful of winners are selected each year. Programs range from single classroom programs to collaborations between classes and other schools, or through community partnerships. This years Superstars winners will be recognized at a reception and awards ceremony on Monday, May 13, 2019.
