Sponsored by the Lamplighter Parents' Association

Details about our SCHOOL-WIDE Event for all ages:

  1. Storytelling: Fables & Folktales with Kathy Schober:
    Viewing Storytelling as a way to spark creativity, strengthen communities and build strong character, Kathy Schober shares interactive folktales and fables. Kathy has told stories as "Miss Katie the Storylady" for over twenty years in such venues as Memphis in May, The Children's Museum and the Pink Palace Crafts Fair. Her work in using stories to teach and inspire has earned her local, state and national awards.  Kathy has a Masters in Education and presently works for St. Ann Catholic Church and School. We look forward to welcoming Kathy Schober to LMS.
  2. Sewing: Visit our "sewing room" & stuff your own pillow with a "peaceful wish!" Seamstresses will stitch your pillow. Use it for a nap in the car or to get cozy with a new book! (one pillow per child)
  3. Book Swap: Flyers are going home with details! Begin reviewing your bookshelves at home & making a 5-book stack/family member to send to school next week. All gently-used books will be featured at our Book Swap! Send in 5 books & choose 5 different titles to bring home!
  4. Volunteers: A flyer will come home this week! Family Literacy Night is a free event. Consider volunteering to send in bottled water or a snack for our refreshment table. We welcome donations of 12 oz. bags of fiberfill pillow stuffing for our sewing project. 

For more information about Family Literacy Night, please contact Elise Rodriguez (Librarian & 8th grade Mom) or by texting 901-581-1592. We look forward to seeing all LMS families on Friday, February 24. Bring a friend!
