Fostering a Love of Reading


To foster a love of reading, Thomas J. Lahey Elementary School invited parents to share in some quality reading time with their child during the school’s annual Read-In event on Oct. 23.

In the allotted half hour, parents and students scattered around the TJL campus and selected a comfortable location to read together. Parents brought along some of their child’s favorite storybooks and a blanket to sit on while they enjoyed the fall weather outside or chose to read in-doors. While in groups, students and parents took turns reading aloud and showcasing the colorful illustrations in the book.
