EnjoyReading goes back to school at our pilot site, DC Scholars Stanton Elementary School in Southeast Washington, DC! This is our second year at Stanton, and we were so excited to reconnect with students, staff, and families over a love of reading!
We have some big plans in store for Stanton this year! We are operating out of a full walk-in closet, renovated to be our BookRoom--a working library for Stanton students, teachers, and parents. Students in grades K-3 are visiting the BookRoom weekly to choose one high quality, engaging book they will enjoy reading to borrow and read at home.
EnjoyReading will host four Family Literacy Nights at Stanton for students and their families throughout the school year. Our first Family Literacy Night is coming up soon! On Thursday, October 4 we will "Cuddle Up and Read" with our students and their families as they work together to make no-sew fleece blankets, eat healthy meals, and, of course, read together as a family!
We hope you will keep up with our blog as we work to get kids and families to enjoy reading at Stanton Elementary!
