Ghouls, goblins and other characters invaded Cottageville Elementary School last Wednesday for “A Celebration of Literacy.”
A variety of costumed characters, as well as public officials, traveled to the school to read to the students.
Grades K-2 had a “literacy treasure hunt” while grades 3-5 participated in “Everyone Has a Story,” using a template to find different stories from people in their school. All completing the projects had their class’ name entered in a drawing for prizes.
Author Arylias Nova gave a presentation for grades 3-5 in the cafeteria, followed by “Literacy Element Bingo” during lunch. In the afternoon, grades 3-5 held Celebrity Games in the parking lot, which included a relay race to finish a sentence.
Parents were also invited to come and eat lunch with their students.
