Bonner Elementary School held Bedtime at Bonner Title 1 Parent Literacy night on Dec. 5 for parents and students K-4 to second grade.
Around 200 students and families came dressed out in their PJs! Parents traveled to different learning stations to play reading and math games that students can do at home. The event featured parent information sessions on the Common Core State Standards, Technology Apps to support learning at home, organization and homework tips.
Students decorated cookies and all students got to take home an exciting non-fiction text, Parents took home several materials as well, such as the “Parents Guide to the Common Core Standards” bookmarks to help support your child in reading informational text at home and a Common Core Standard Math Kit.
The purpose of these events is to help parents see ways that they can support their children at home and also to help get parents involved an see what their kids are learning at school. About 30 teachers and other staff members were there to run the event.
