Camp Cato Literacy Night

Camp Cato Literacy Night

AVC Student Council around a pretend campfireA few nights ago when the weather was foggy and drizzly, over 200 parents and students braved the cold weather and gathered in our gymnasium and cafeteria for Camp Cato, Literacy Night. We welcomed everyone with a hot cup of cocoa or chocolate milk and a warm chocolate chip cookie. Parents, students and educators were in for a treat as the school was transformed in to a camp ground for learning. Teachers worked hard to bring fun and creative experiences for students and parents. 

The memory of the cold wind outside was soon forgotten, as families warmed themselves by the campfire and listened to read-aloud stories told by Castleberry High School students, and coordinated by our favorite Librarian, Ms. Jakus. Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten teachers brought a well-loved past time, Fishing for Sight Words. Students and parents dusted off their fishing pole and hoped for a big one! First grade brought the love of storytelling with Reading Sequencing. Ms. Mendez and the team of First grade teachers had a large crowd at their storytelling table. Second grade brought everyone's favorite, S'Mores and Procedural Writing on How to Build a S'more. Fourth grade brought in a knowledge of camp ground vocabulary words with a spin on matching picture to word. Fifth grade teachers with another favorite, Synonym Bingo!

A wonderful evening was had by all who were in attendance. We are thankful for all our parents and students who continue to support A.V. Cato Elementary.
