Natchitoches Junior High School Engages Families In Literacy

Families and students at Natchitoches Junior High School had a blast at the Family Literacy Night on Nov. 2. Literacy Night encourages relationships between reading with parents and students. It was great to see families “Fall into Literacy” as they participated in multiple activities.

Those in attendance had a fun-filled night. Families also had the opportunity to visit the Book Mobile and their activities. Storytellers from Northwestern State University gathered families in the cafeteria for storytelling. Students were also able to read stories to rescue dogs from the humane society. Staff members from Natchitoches Junior High School engaged students in the experience through various activities, such as building fairytale fortune-tellers and other hands-on activities such as jump rope and rhyme, vocabulary bingo, fall crossword, family game night, and much more!

The night concluded with multiple raffle prize winners. Those winners went home with school supplies, Cane’s Kid Meal prizes, reading materials, and a bicycle. Congratulations to the winners!

Thanks goes out to Instructional Specialist, Rebecca Theriot, for coordinating this event. Thanks also goes out to sponsors and parent volunteers for donating their time and contributions, making this event a great success! Stay tuned for an upcoming STEM Night!
