NEW HAVEN, Mo. - Franklin County R-2 has been taking steps to encourage students to read more by getting family members involved through a Family Reading Night held monthly.

Each month a different theme is chosen as a way to help broaden student’s knowledge on the many different types of books.  February’s theme reading night theme was “Mixed Up Fairy Tales”, which was held on the 24th.

Franklin County R-2 has been hosting family reading throughout the school once a month.  Teachers and guest readers entertain the families with reading and crafts.

Each night refreshments are served and door prizes are also given away.

In addition to night filled with fun activities the school’s PTO gives each child that attends a free book.
