LINDEN – Educators agree that reading as a family is an important activity. Linden Public Schools has many after school events that value family fun around the theme of books.
Linden School No. 6 PTA recently hosted a Scholastic Book Fair. The book fair generated community involvement and connected children with books they want to read. Pictured above, PTA President Lakhia Carter assists Kiersten Hamm in selecting books at the annual book fair.
Linden School No. 9 PTA Book Bingo is an engaging evening event designed to allow families to spend time together and enjoy the company of others. Parents and students have the opportunity to play the old-time favorite game bingo and when there is a winner, a child chooses a book to read.
Students and parents thoroughly enjoyed this exciting family night, school officials report. Some parents have even asked when another family night will be scheduled.
