Burghard Elementary School will host a Family Reading Night on Thursday, September 29, from 6-7:30 p.m. at the school. The evening’s theme will be “Fall into a Good Book” and all activities will be focused on fall leaves.
The evening is designed to allow parents to visit teachers in each grade level and participate in activities that their students would be doing in class.
“Each child will receive a free book and we will also provide parents with make-and-take sessions so that they will have materials to take home and use with their students,” Burghard Instructional Coach Letasha Pope said. She also said that parents will learn how to link literacy to other content areas such as Math, Science, and Social Studies.
Burghard Elementary has been holding Family Reading Nights for several years now.
“Each time we hold the event, we have parents thanking us for providing them with ideas and activities that they can use at home to encourage their students to read,” Burghard Principal Terri Walker said. “The parents enjoy the evening so much that we often have difficulty getting them to leave at the end. They want to visit just one more grade level to get more ideas.”
Burghard Elementary School is located at 6020 Bloomfield Road. For more information, contact the school at (478)779-2900.
