Hadley hosts Family Reading Night
Hadley Middle School students and their families enjoyed a magical evening of reading and storytelling Thursday (Nov. 17).
Organized by the school’s Family Reading Night Committee, the evening offered Hadley families an opportunity to celebrate the joy of reading together through games and activities, such as Book Quiditch, arts and crafts projects and a PTO Scholastic Bookfaire.
“Family Reading Night is an opportunity for families and Homer Staff to come together and celebrate the power of literacy and the impact that it can and does have on the children that we serve,” said Dawn Scuderi, the library media specialist at Hadley.
“Building excitement around the way we engage in stories and informational text that can be shared with parents is always the goal of our teachers and the Homer School Library staff,” she added, “and our Family Reading Night gives the community an event that highlights that.”
Among those participating were Superintendent Kara Coglianese, who shared her love of books and storytelling by reading aloud to groups of children.
Accounting Coordinator Deborah Brom brought her licensed comfort dog, Toby, to listen as students took turns reading aloud to him.
“We are excited to say that this year we have public librarians, community members, teachers, staff, parents and administrators volunteering their time and resources to give families a night focused on literacy that students look forward to every year,” said Scuderi.
“This year we have more volunteers than ever before,” she added. “It is truly wonderful to see so many people support our families and literacy!”
