Family Meet and Greet: September 2016
Our Family Resource Coordinator Kara Lewis set up a "Meet and Greet" for families to come together and meet our Instructional Tutors Lynn Rhodes, Candace Rang and Erinn Dykstra. The Education Manager Cynthia DeJesus began the session by speaking of the importance of oral language and enhancing the love of reading by families reading with their children. Instructional Tutors do just that, they are in the classrooms engaging with children to promote oral language and story telling. Lynn Rhodes along with being an Instructional Tutor coordinates Family Literacy events throughout the school year. During these events she models reading to families as well as give families tools and tips on how to simply continue what families are doing at home with books. Families who attend these events go home with a book to build their home libraries. At the end of the "Meet and Greet" families chose books to take home.
