Hanford-Dole book club presentation

Greg Philpot, from Novant Health and a Communities In Schools board member, was the guest reader for the book, “Froggy Builds a Tree House,” as Hanford-Dole Elementary School first-graders enjoyed the March book club presentation.
The story about Froggy and his friends building a tree house with “no girls” allowed had a surprise ending. Philpot kept the students’ interested in the book and asked questions on comprehension throughout the presentation — even joked a little while reading!
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. Hanford-Dole and Communities In Schools are committed to engaging parents in school activities to better prepare students and parents to work together with the school.
