A Literacy Night to Remember

On Friday (2/8/2013) I visited Westview Elementary in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

I spoke with each grade during the day, and in the evening I presented to parents, teachers and students at their 3rd Annual Literacy Night.

Last year’s author was Anna Dewdney who is well known for her “Llama, Llama” books.

I drew a picture of TINY SNAIL for the school (below), and the principal, Margo Williams, plans to have it framed.

Members of the Bridge Christian Church set up an elaborate sound and video system for my evening program. Many thanks to them for their cheerful, technical support.

The event was hugely successful due to the efforts of the Westview PTA, particularly Celeste Ward, the PTA President. Many thanks to the PTA, parents, teachers and students who made Friday night a literacy night to remember!

FROM THE WESTVIEW WEBSITE:

Westview’s third annual Literacy Night was a huge success! Over 300 parents, teachers, and students came together to celebrate reading. We all enjoyed meeting author and illustrator, Tammy Bronson, who wrote the Sea Horse, Run and Tiny Snail books. She was very generous with her time and did a great job reading and drawing for the kids. We learned some great tips from the variety of literacy workshops. We want to thank McDonald’s on Ooltewah-Ringgold Road for the delicious snacks, and READ 20 for the great story. We also want to thank Mac Authority for their workshop, along with all the other teachers who presented. As always, we greatly appreciate the volunteers and teachers who dedicated their time to make the evening possible. We look forward to enjoying Literacy Night next year!”
