Neary Family Literacy Night – October 23

Next Monday, Neary School is hosting its 3rd Annual Family Literacy Night. It’s an evening to celebrate student literacy as a family. It’s also a chance for the school to raise funds for SOS* and collect contributions to The Pajama Program. This year, pajamas are being collected for victims of hurricanes.

The program donates books to children awaiting adoption. Attendees are urged to bring a new set of non-fleece pajamas size infant to Children’s 10.

The event takes place Monday, October 24, 2016 from 6:00-8:00 pm. (Doors open at 5:45 pm and the first station begins promptly at 6:00 pm.)

The night is organized into 6 stations – and families are encouraged to plan the whole two hours to take advantage:

  • Scholastic Book Fair
  • Storyteller – Big Ryan
  • Pizza and ice cream
  • Family metaphor poems
  • Green screen family photo
  • OSMO learning on iPads

Wondering what OSMO learning is? Neary has been promoting their fundraising efforts for the tool to enhance their digital learning efforts. You can check out the flyer right. (Coincidentally, just this week, Fay School tweeted about their use of OSMO “coding music” with 5th grade students. You can scroll down to see that.**)
