Reading Night continues to succeed at Sigourney Elementary

Dozens of students in kindergarten through sixth grade, accompanied by their parents, filled the halls of Sigourney Elementary for the annual Family Reading Night on March 1. Staff came up with a Hawaiian theme for the seventh edition of the reading night.

Those who ventured the main halls found numerous activities including Plinko, book walk, getting tattoos, participating in a scavenger hunt and guessing how many objects were in jars. All the kids were given leis and raffle tickets when they walked in, and before they left each had the chance to pick out a free book to take home.

“There’s a book for everyone. The authors are honing in on what kids like and we try to make sure there’s a multitude of topics to give everyone something they’d like,” said Reading Night Director Jodie Crawford. “This event brings families and kids together to celebrate the importance of books and reading.”

Numerous books were found around most of the activities, along with a book sale where each book was being sold at 25 cents. Over 500 books were sold in the 90 minutes for Reading Night.
