Fairview Elementary School in Plymouth recently held a family reading night with games, activities and a book swap.
"The main objective of the family reading night was to illustrate to students and parents the importance of reading," Melissa Costello, Fairview library media specialist, said in a news release.
About 200 parents and students attended the free event, held Jan. 24 at the school. Families could play a number of reading games, including sight word "island hopping" and board games featuring punctuation, synonyms and antonyms and rhymes.
Students could design a bookmark to take home, and participate in a book swap. District reading specialists offered ways for parents to support their children's reading efforts.
The event was presented by the Fairview PTO and Fairview staff.
