Plant a Seed

and Read!

Title 1 Parent Night

The first Title 1 Parent Night for First Graders and their families was held on Thursday, March 15, from 7-8 p.m. Our theme for the night was, "Plant a Seed and Read". The students made books with their parents to take home. The parents were given strategies and suggestions for games and activities that they could use at home to engage their children in literacy activities. The students also decorated a cup that will be used as a mini flower pot, filled it with dirt, and received a packet of seeds to plant at home. While some kids were decorating their pots, others were enjoying juice and cookies. The evening ended with each First Grader selecting a book to take home for their own library. Our next Title I Parent Night is scheduled for Thursday, May 24, from 7-8 p.m. We hope to see all of the First Grade families at this event!
