Wrapping up the fall semester, Interim Superintendent Lamond Dean visited elementary campuses for community involvement events.

Kissam Literacy Night allowed parents and students to come together for their first monthly reading event in November. Jackson invited dads and father figures to participate in crafts and bonding activities during their Male Involvement program, while Mrs. Renick welcomed Dean to read to her┬ákindergarten students at Wise. The Children’s Advocacy Center presented lessons to Kissam pre-k students in December.

“I was honored to participate in the Headstart Male Involvement program at Jackson Elementary,” Dean said.

Kissam also plans to invite firefighters and police officers to visit with parents and students and participate in reading activities.

“The purpose of the event is to promote reading and foster parent involvement at Kissam,” Candace James, the Kissam librarian, said. “Each month we have a different literacy focus. For example, October was ‘Fall Into Reading,’ and we had a variety of carnival-type games that were literacy based. The January focus is community helpers.”

Kissam’s next Literacy Night will take place on January 23rd, where students will show their parents how to navigate thinking.
