October 22, 2021 -- Walnut Street Elementary School hosted its first Title I-funded family involvement program for the 2021-2022 school year.
The program, entitled “Stories Around the Campfire,” took place outside on school grounds on a beautiful fall day. Students and their families rotated through four centers during the program. The centers were facilitated by Walnut Street teachers Mrs. Sablack, Mrs. H. Decker, Mrs. Tomitz, Ms. DeMarinise, and Mrs. Millington.
Students listened to two stories around the campfire, including one interactive story where students followed step-by-step directions to create a pumpkin or a black cat. In another center, students made lollipop ghosts and wrote stories about their ghosts. At the snack center, participants enjoyed a snack while reading books with their parents/guardians.
A good time was had by all who attended!
