“Knight” of Reading at North Shore Elementary School

North Shore Elementary

January 12, 2016

North Shore Elementary recently held a “Knight” of Reading Under the Stars to promote family reading. Studies show that children benefit from having their parents read aloud to them not only when they are little, but all the way up to and through middle school. North Shore invited parents to bring a blanket and a flashlight so they could read to their children outdoors at night. Students performed, children picked out free books to read and take home, and a raffle ended the night. Sally Baynard, the gifted teacher at North Shore Elementary, tells us about the night and about a reading program that North Shore Elementary is starting in January, called “One School: One Book.”
