Beverly-Center’s Family Literacy Night a success

May 18, 2014
By Sue Sampson , Parkersburg News and Sentinel

More than 100 children and their parents attended Beverly-Center's Family Literacy Night May 8. The evening began with hot dogs and a camping-style dinner served by the school's PTO - capped off by everyone's favorite camping treat, do-it-yourself s'mores. After dinner, families had the opportunity to visit several 'campsites' to gather information about reading and how to keep their students' learning skills fresh over the summer. Thanks go out to these community members for giving their time to make the evening a success: Susan Chipps from the Beverly Branch of the Washington County Library for passing out bookmarks and sharing information about the library's summer reading program and many other resources available at the library; Jessica Ross for sharing important information about staying safe around water - and the 'news' that the Beverly Pool officially opens May 24!; Kathy Doddrill from the Ohio State Extension Office shared healthy summer snack and meal ideas for all ages; Susanne Burchett and Sue Trotter brought free books from the American Legion Auxiliary's R.I.F. - Reading is Fundamental - program; and John Shreve, Kay Shreve, Linda Schaad, Heather Mahoney, and Kelli Walsh representing the Beverly Lion's Club lending a hand at all the displays when a spare hand was needed. Other displays included Summer math games, summer reading ideas, travel around the U.S.A., and summer learning packets highlighting summer activities and a 'heads up' on skills for next school year.
