InTENTs Reading, y’all!

specialsGreat reading, fellowship, and fun abide when you pitch some creative tents and read, read, read together!  Such was the event this evening where IMG_6774families joined together to read and visit with another our teachers in cleverly designed areas throughout the main hallway.  From Clifford the Big Red dog under the Big Top to the PoeTREE, we shared great books.  PTO assisted in the Book Fair area IMG_6775where families shopped (and donated) new books.  Special thanks to our LME Family Events Committee, our extraordinary teachers, and our families who came out to celebrate with us.  As one friend noted, “It’s some inTENTs reading, y’all!  🙂
