Eastside Elementary

Reading Night event attracts 37 families

Eastside Elementary School's family center sponsored a Family Reading Night for kindergarteners through second-graders on Jan. 26, attracting 37 families interested in learning skills to help their children read.

Debbie Spitler, Hernando County reading coach, presented "How To Read Aloud To Your Child Like a Pro."

Eastside Title I parent educator Beth Zacharias attributed the event's success to the many teachers who attended; the YMCA's Bonnie Townsend, who provided free babysitting; the Eastside Elementary PTA, which provided food and beverages; and the Title I Parent Involvement Program.

At the beginning of the school year, the Hernando County Computer Club donated two computers. One was awarded as a door prize to second-grader Paul Naylor, 8.

The other will be awarded at a Title I Parent Involvement math event.
