Adventure Abounds At Family Lit Night


“Let the Adventure Begin” was the theme for Family Literacy Night on Tuesday, Nov. 16, at Raymond Grade School, hosted by Panhandle Title I teachers Sue Koller and McKenzie Michaelis.

Koller is the Title teacher at Raymond Grade School, and Michaelis is the Title teacher at Farmersville Grade School.  The event, for students in pre-K through fifth grade and their families, was funded through the Panhandle Title I grant.

Families visited nine interactive adventure stations: Treasure Island, where they dug for letters to make words; a Where Will Your Reading Take You photo booth; the created Harry Potter bookmarks at Hogwarts; played sentence hopscotch; created comic strips in Gotham City; solved riddles at 39 Clues, read aloud at the Grandma’s House stop; and created colorful visors in Neverland.

As students and their families moved from station to station, they had a special travel passport stamped.  Those students who had passport stamps from at least four of the eight stations were invited to finish by grabbing a snack at the ninth station, The Chocolate Factory.
