Family Reading Night is a Huge Success!

On Thursday September 21, 2018, families gathered at the Mary D. Lang Kindergarten Center to learn about the wonderful reading activities happening at the school.

After being greeted in the front lobby, parents were given a bag of resources for use during the evening, as well as at home. Each workshop gave parents a brief introduction to the reading instruction that their students receive dailly. With approximately 81 families in attendance, the buzz of literacy filled the air!

Parents, students, and siblings alike were able to use Reading Eggs and Mathseeds, sing the alphabet song including the signs the students learn, and write using the Handwriting Without Tears method.

It was a fantastic night of learning and fostering the love of learning between the school and the homes of our youngest learners.
