CHARLESTON, MO (KFVS) -

"Aloha Reading Night" was held on Thursday, October 16 at Warren E. Hearnes Elementary School in Charleston, Missouri.

According to the school, it was a product of Title 1 Parent Involvement.

The goal was to educate parents and promote reading both in the classroom and at home.

A brief assembly was led by Principal Frank Ellis, followed by special break-out sessions called "Island Classes" held across the school.

Island Classes were led by teachers on topics including "Reading Eggs," "Being Involved," "Study Island," and "Accelerated Reader."

"It was a slight risk putting on an event catered to parents," said BJ Babb, Title I parent liaison. "The event may have been less entertaining for students, but the payoff was effective communication with our parents."

The school would like to thank Opaa! Food Service, CHS student helpers, and faculty members for a successful event.
