Press Release

LINCOLNTON, N.C. - During the week of October 16-20, Battleground Elementary will be celebrating literacy.

On Tuesday, October 17, they will be holding Family Reading Round Up Night from 5:30 p.m. until 7 p.m. Information sessions will be held for parents in order to provide them with strategies that they can use at home to make reading with their child more enjoyable and productive.  Students will be participating in multiple literacy stations which will be beneficial to help them increase their fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension skills.  Students, parents and teachers will be encouraged to wear their favorite western wear to the “Reading Round Up”.  All families that attend will be treated to a Subway snack so parents/guardians can enjoy reading night without having to hurry home to feed their children.

Mr. Donald Welch, school principal, stated “We are excited about the upcoming reading night on Tuesday, October 17.  This is a wonderful opportunity for our staff to provide outstanding reading resources and strategies with parents and students.”

The foundation of a successful reading program is a partnership between school and home.  Studies have shown that even when children are learning to read, it is still important for parents to continue to read TO their child.  It assists in expanding their vocabulary and enhancing their listening skills. When reading WITH their child, parents are helping to build vocabulary, stimulate imagination, and expand the child’s understanding of the world.  Reading with a parent /guardian provides children with a strong foundation for success.  Our literacy night will equip parents with the knowledge and tools they need to feel successful when reading with their child at home.

In conjunction with this event, Battleground will also be holding their annual Scholastic Book Fair for October. This event will run from October 16-20.  Students will have opportunities to visit the fair and purchase affordable books in a variety of reading levels and genres. 

On Wednesday October 18, students and staff will have the opportunity to demonstrate their creativity and imagination by dressing up as their favorite book character to support and encourage the love of reading in students.
