SELMA – Roosevelt Elementary’s third annual Family Literacy Night gave families a chance to go wild as they celebrated literacy with a variety of events at their school.
Selma Unified School District Teacher Librarian Debbie Spencer reported that there were 265 in attendance that took advantage of the pizza dinner and workshops where they learned how to download free e-books on their devices.
The Roosevelt Drama Club presented a skit and students went home with gifts of books, T-shirts, Kindles, hot chocolate and cookies, she said.
Parents and students took part in workshops such as the Word Work, Build-A-Buddy, Family Time, Library Website Resources for both Selma Unified and Fresno County Libraries, Working with Sight Words and Online Reading Resources.
Spencer said it took the entire Roosevelt community to make their Literacy Night a success.
“We are grateful for so many teachers who presented, fed, cleaned, decorated and translated. We are grateful to our Parent Club for the gift of pizza and T-shirts and to our local sponsor, Walmart, for fruits and veggies. And for the chocolate chip cookies, thank you, Mrs. DeFord. We are also grateful for our Leadership students who volunteered their hands and feet in service. Finally, we are grateful for the gift of literacy and a school that has so many resources to support our homes and school as we all learn and grow.”
