B-L Primary School Hosts Successful Family Literacy Night

On Monday, November 19th, around 400 attendees flocked to B-L Primary School for their annual Family Literacy Night, which was themed around the book “Twas the Night Before Thanksgiving” by Dav Pilkey.

Students and their families enjoyed a delicious pizza dinner and then rotated around to numerous stations including a read aloud/story re-enactment by faculty members and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) activities.  The activities were planned by grade levels, so students could choose from exercises such as creating a turkey puppet, researching important facts about turkeys using a Chromebook, and comparing and contrasting books about Thanksgiving, just to name a few.

Each family that attended left with their very own “book bags,” which were filled with a book, pencil and bookmark.
