Frank J. Carasiti Elementary School students and staff once again participated in the Parents as Reading Partners program this February.
During the program, the students were encouraged to take time to read
with their families each day and keep a tally of the time they spent reading. As a school, FJC celebrated reading by having a parent and his or her child read a new poem over the loudspeaker during the daily morning announcements.
The school also hosted a pajama reading program, during which Principal Virginia Gibbons and Assistant Principal Dr. Courtney Herbert shared several stories aloud as the students and their families gathered on cozy blankets in the library. After the story time, those in attendance had a chance to enjoy cookies and milk in the school’s cafeteria.
