Feb 08, 2013
Hazelwood students enjoy being read to at the Winter Family Reading Night. Some of the students pictured are  Addy Melton, Natalie Bolden, Cooper Williamson, Nicole Binney, Sofie Bricke, and Bailey Remokitis.

Hazelwood Elementary School recently celebrated the joy of reading and storytelling with their 4th Annual Winter Family Reading Night.

While sipping hot chocolate and munching on cookies, students and their parents enjoyed reading with each other and hearing stories from local authors, Angela Dove and Dawn Cusick, Children's Public Librarian, Carole Dennis, and even Hazelwood's D.A.R.E. Officer, Officer Howell.

Parents were also provided with tips to help in their child's reading education and given the opportunity to sign up for a parent library card.  The evening culminated with a door prize drawing in which many students received the best gift of all — a book!
