Reddick rolled out the lawn games, brought out the book fair, and served up some free hot dogs to welcome families back on campus. Although it looked quite different with masks and social distancing, it was an exciting evening to celebrate literacy and enjoy our community.
"The evening was filled with excitement, laughter, and learning! A fantastic, but safe time was had by all who attended. " says new principal, Dr. Dames.
We had a great turn out for first event in over a year. Until recently, schools were not able to have visitors on campus, but with the updated regulations, we were definitely ready to extend the invitation.
Shannon Castillo, our coordinator for Parent Involvement said, "I was so excited and happy to see so many families back on the campus for our Literacy Family Night. In prior years, we were used to hosting family events several times a year that would draw large crowds; generally, over 300 people would attend. This was our first in person event of the year, and we were thrilled to welcome over 150 families that attended. The excitement was contagious as students entered the gate and interacted with the different stations. I can't wait to see our families back for our "Summer Send Off" event which is scheduled for May 20th!"
May 20th will be our Family Summer Send off! We will have a special musical performance, FREE hot dogs, lawn games, a BOGO book fair (buy one book and get one for FREE), and we will have treats, drinks, and sno cones for sale.
We can't wait to see you! Please wear a mask, and be sure to keep a social distance from others.
