Family Literacy Night

Blue Ash Elementary

04/25/2013 05:30 PM - 04/25/2013 07:30 PM

To help parents promote literacy at home, Blue Ash Elementary will host a Family Literacy Night on April 25 from 5:30 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. at the school (9541 Plainfield Road).

“Parents want to help their children become better readers,” said Melissa Ostrowski, Blue Ash fourth-grade teacher. “Family Literacy Night will allow families to participate in fun, engaging, literacy-focused activities together so they can take ideas and implement them in their homes.”

Activities include interactive reading, fun with poetry, scavenger hunts, crafts, technology applications and more.  Attendees will also enjoy free pizza and every student will receive a free book.

“Thanks to a partnership with our local Papa John’s, we can offer free pizza and the books are funded through a grant from First Book, supported through the University of Cincinnati Blue Ash First Book Advisory Board.  However, it’s the engagement and support of our fabulous teachers that makes Literacy Night a reality,” said Leslie Combs, Blue Ash principal.

Ostrowski agreed.

“This is all voluntary. We have 25 staff members who are volunteering their time to create activities families can do together to promote reading and writing. Our parents and families do so much for us and we are happy we can provide this event for them,” Ostrowski said.

The pizza dinner begins at 5:30 p.m. and literacy activities run from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
