Criswell Elementary Hosts Family Reading Night

On Thursday, December 6, Criswell families took part in a Family Reading Night. The Criswell faculty, PTO members, and Lions Club volunteers welcomed everyone to the Enchanted Forest.

Book fairies gave out books to all children in attendance, while the Criswell bell ringers entertained everyone with Christmas tunes.

Authors, Joey and Melanie Acker, held book readings all evening. Many participants had fun posing with whimsical masks and props in the photo station.

Children attended the Book Fair in the Susan K. Nelson Library, PTO-sponsored Cookies with Santa in the cafeteria, and literacy games and craft stations in the gym.

Students earned gold coins at each station for grade level “pot of gold” drawings for Scholastic Book Fair books. There were books and families everywhere!! What an enchanting night!
