Bataan Memorial Elementary School staff will help promote reading during summer vacation. The goal is to strengthen reading skills and keep reading levels from sliding backwards, which can happen over the summer. There are three Literacy on the Lawn events from 6-7:30 p.m. on June 18 at the West End Shelter House; July 16 at the Lakeview Park Shelter House; and Aug. 6 on Bataan Memorial’s Front Lawn.
Children should have an adult accompany them. Bataan families are asked to arrive at 6 p.m. with blanket and books, Children without books can pick one from the book swap area. Ida Rupp Library has fun events planned for 6 p.m., with the reading hour at 6:30 p.m. Bataan Memorial Parents Club is sponsoring a cool treat for children attending at 7:30 p.m.
