Birney Elementary Hosts Literacy Night

Birney Elementary recently hosted a family literacy night with the theme of “travel through tales far and wide.” The teachers chose characters and folk tales and developed them with the students throughout the school year.

According to librarian Myra Mitchell, teachers highlighted the theme in all classes.

Students from Grace King’s theater department dressed in characters and gave an interactive performance.

Author Leif Pederson who wrote the book Swamp Kids was the special guest.
