Día: El día de los niños/El día de los libros (Children's Day/Book Day), commonly known as Día

We are so excited to celebrate Día on Friday, April 26.

Ms. McCabe and parent volunteers have created an interactive Story Walk to celebrate Día. Every classroom will visit the Story Walk for the opportunity to read and listen to two English/Spanish books.

Parents are encouraged to attend with their child’s classroom during their scheduled time to visit the Story Walk on Friday, April 26. Classroom schedule.

Reception at 12:35pm-1:15pm: Ms. McCabe is also hosting students and parents in the Lobo Library. Parents, grandparents, and/or the adult(s) who picks-up your child are invited to explore the Lobo Library with students. You’ll be amazed at how much Ms. McCabe and our library offer. You’re guaranteed to discover new ways to encourage your child to read. This is also another opportunity for parents to visit the Story Walk if they can’t attend with their child’s classroom.


About Día El día de los niños/El día de los libros (Children's Day/Book Day), commonly known as Día, is a celebration every day of children, families, and reading that culminates yearly on April 30. The celebration emphasizes the importance of literacy for children of all linguistic and cultural backgrounds. Día is a nationally recognized initiative that emphasizes the importance of literacy for all children from all backgrounds. It is a daily commitment to linking children and their families to diverse books, languages and cultures. The common goals of all Día programming are to:

  • Celebrate children and connect them to the world of learning through books, stories and libraries.

  • Nurture cognitive and literacy development in ways that honor and embrace a child's home language and culture.

  • Introduce families to community resources that provide opportunities for learning through multiple literacies.

  • Recognize and respect culture, heritage and language as powerful tools for strengthening families and communities.
