Amanda Perreault read along with her daughter, Kaidence, last Thursday during Family Literacy Night at St. Michael’s School here. The event offered literacy-based activities, such as word Bingo, buddy reading, computers, listening centres, and a Smart Board presentation in an effort to engage parents in supporting their children with literacy skills at home.
