Are you the parent or guardian of a child in preschool through Grade 2 who wants to help your child read at home, but looking for ideas and expert advice? Through a partnership with Ames Community School District, the Iowa State University School of Education and the Ames Public Library, we’re launching a series of Reading Camps for parents. 

The first Reading Camp is Thursday, Nov. 17, from 6:30- 8 p.m., at our District Offices, 2005 24th St., in the Boardroom.

We’ll share what “a day in the life” of reading instruction is like in our schools for students in preschool through second grade, provide strategies you can use for reading at home with your child and offer tips for choosing books that will keep your child engaged in reading.

Please RSVP by Tuesday, Nov. 15, with this form.Father reading to children
