FOUNTAIN GREEN—Over 150 students and parents attended Fountain Green Elementary School’s literacy night, which turned into a “Seuss-Tastic” event.

All attendees were able to participate in two literacy-based activities and were served a delicious dinner of homemade soups and breadsticks.

Every student who attended was able to put his or her name in for a drawing to win backpacks full of books. The books for the drawing were donated by a private donor and the backpacks were made by Jennifer Roach.

In conjunction with the activity, there was a large scholastic book fair, and the town’s library held reading contests and encouraged reading with prizes and incentives.

“It was a fun night for the students and parents in our community,” said Principal Robyn Cox. “I want to give a huge thank you to our wonderful community council for hosting this amazing event.”
