PEP Family Night
On Thursday, June 14th Public Education Partners sponsored its annual Family Reading Night at Brook Glenn. Families are divided into their child’s age group, where trained volunteers lead interactive read aloud sessions. For the parents in attendance, the volunteers model useful strategies for reading aloud with their children. These strategies focus on increasing parents’ confidence and capacity to support year-round reading in their home. At the end of the event, each family takes home a copy of the read-aloud book and children select free, high-interest, age-appropriate books to add to their home library.
The goal of Family Reading Nights is for families to observe and learn literacy strategies they can use at home with their children. By taking an active role in their child’s reading, parents can have an immense impact on their child’s future success, helping them become stronger readers and instilling in them a lifelong love for learning. Thank you goes to Public Education Partners for the countless hours of reading they have given to our students.
