?Family Reading Night? provides time for parents, children to learn together

ORIGINALLY WRITTEN BY JULIE ANDERSON
?Family Reading Night? at Hillsboro Elementary School offers learning for adults and children through a variety of projects.



The reading night will be held from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., Thursday, March 23, at the elementary school library.



The evening will feature ?read-alouds? and parents can browse and read with children. Parents will have the opportunity to visit the computer lab to take practice tests and learn more about the Accelerated Reader/Star programs used by the school to encourage and improve reading.



The evening also provides parents with a chance to learn more about the ?Safari? reading challenge elementary students are participating in during March and April.



The evening is open to the community, but children need to be accompanied by an adult. Visitors may spend the entire time there or come and go.



The evening provides an opportunity to encourage children and adults to enjoy books and reading together, to see what is available in children?s literature and to see how a portion of the school reading program works. Light snacks will be provided.



The evening is hosted by the elementary site council; Pat Call, principal; Carolyn Penner, librarian; and Bruce Winkler, computer teacher.
