Our ELA department met with parents for a literacy night to talk about how parents can help their children read at home (at the middle school level), what the deal with all this Lexile talk is, and how to connect through AR Home Connect. Because this is Super Bowl season, we went for a football approach for our literacy night theme. Our Beta students provided snacks and served parents football themed goodies. All student and parent volunteers were amazingly helpful. Thank you to all of our teachers who volunteered their time to help our parents as well.
