TITLE I READING NIGHT

Join us on Thursday, February 18 from 5:00 - 7:00 PM "For the Love of Reading"! Parents and children will have the chance to visit different classrooms to learn a variety of lessons and games that make reading fun! By the end of the night, you will for sure fall in love with reading. There will also be a Book Exchange from 5:00 - 5:30 -- bring a book to exchange with another student!
