Breakfast and Books with someone special
Lowell School's reading program
Lowell Elementary School's Title 1 program once again hosted Breakfast and Books. This has been successful with Lowell families, school officials said. In recent years during the pandemic, the school needed to host this event over three days to accommodate smaller gatherings at one time. With Lowell's new gym addition and COVID-19 restrictions lifted, an estimated 550 parents and students attend the one-day event Tuesday, March 29. Participants were able to eat breakfast, read and talk about books together and learn how to best support their children reading at home. Some of the participants Tuesday were three generations of Lowell graduates.
Parents and students were able to learn about the services at the library and watch a video of Lowell staff sharing why they love to read. The event was made possible with Title 1 funding that focuses on parent and family engagement activities. Each child also was able to go home with a free book.
