Students teach parents

October 14, 2004

Thomasville - All week, students have studied different continents. As part of family reading night, they will make presentations to their parents and teachers then participate in a fun-filled carnival.

Tammy Wooten says, "There is no charge to any of our parents or our students. They can all come, they each get a hot dog, drink and chips and all the outside activities are also free, and all of that is thanks to our business partners."

Cherie Ameyaw says, "It is very important for parents to be involved in their child's education, research has shown that students to be more involved, achievement goes up, so it's very important for parents to get involved in their children's education, particular reading."

Family reading night starts at 5:30 and lasts until 8 o'clock Thursday night.
