Jefferson Elementary School Hosts Literacy Night!
On January 8th Jefferson Elementary hosted our Literacy Night. During the time students rotated between three different stations with their families. They were read to by a fireman, learned about how a popular author writes and illustrates his books, and finally created a project supporting essential grade level vocabulary. After hearing a bedtime story read by the principal, Mr. Krueger, the students could go and pick out their own book to take home.
The event was coordinated by Kindergarten Teachers Delores Olver and Elisabeth Becker in combination with our Family Resource Center Coordinator and parent Jennifer Ressler. 67 Jefferson students attended with their parents along with 10 additional staff members. The event represents the high quality instruction and work Jefferson does with their students every day.
