Literacy Night provides wealth of experiences

Books were available for all grade levels at the Literacy Night on March 3.
Boone Central Elementary students, parents and grandparents were treated to an energetic agenda for the second annual Family Literacy Night last Tuesday, March 3.
“Wild About Reading” was the theme for the evening, which started with an enthusiastic performance by the high school band and drum line, and included a wild animal presentation by Horn T Zoo, a chance to visit therapy dogs, and a wide variety of educational games and activities. There was also a snack station, with Raelynn Bygland providing treats.
It was a large event making use of most of the elementary school, the Performance Gym and multi-purpose gym, and attendance was high at about 600 people, including 240 students. Organizers were staff members Trina Hellbusch and Amber Hamik.
