Hanford-Dole February Book Club

Published 12:00 am Thursday, March 6, 2014

Hanford-Dole Elementary School first-graders enjoyed the February Book Club presentation last week.
Kristi Miracco, the school’s new assistant principal, shared the book, “The Biggest Valentine Ever.” It’s a story about two little mice who work together as a team to make a big valentine for their teacher. Miracco gave students the opportunity to use their critical-thinking skills to process the reading material and to work on new vocabulary words.
The Hanford-Dole Book Club is sponsored by grants from Target stores, Schneider Electric and Communities in Schools of Rowan County.
Fran Simpson, Communities in Schools site coordinator, did a parent presentation on reading and writing to the parents as a follow-up on the book that was read. Hanford-Dole and Communities In Schools is committed to engaging the parents in school activities to better prepare students and parents to work together with the school.
