Students got the chance to bring their families to school to celebrate Family Literacy Night, an evening of activities designed to show parents what students are learning in their classes at Chase School.
With its new Vision 2020 focus of Arts & Culture, each of the activities followed that theme. Participating families received a passport outlining the activities throughout the school, which was stamped upon completion.
“It was an excellent way to give families a chance to get together and work with our children,” said Tamara Harris, parent of a preschooler and a first-grader. “At home, there are so many distractions, so it’s good to have this opportunity.”
Families enjoyed games of Word Bingo, along with mathematics challenges. They also received information about the Third-Grade Reading Guarantee and ways to keep their students on track.
“It’s such a great way to get parents into the school,” said Christine Shryock who has two children in 3rd and 5th grade. “You don’t often git a first-hand look at what your children are doing at school. So, this will probably help get more parents involved.”
