Riverside kicked off our first summer story hour. We had over 60 students in attendance including incoming Kindergarten students. Each week we will have a special visitor to promote literacy and reading to our students. We were honored today to have Anna Leeper from the Dublin Arts Council come to share about Riverboxes. She shared the history of Riverboxes and set up a treasure hunt for all of the students to participate in. The students worked in teams to follow clues to discover the prize that was hidden around the school.
We also had a staff member from the Columbus Public Library here to help parents sign up for a library card and the summer reading program. Parents were able to participate with their child or learn how to support their child in the area of reading over the summer.
10 Riverside staff members volunteered their time today to support this program. We were all thrilled with the turn out and it felt great to have students back in the building.
We look forward to next Wednesday, June 17th
when we have a local storyteller joining us.
