At Grasslands Public Schools, we value the teaching that parents do at home!
Did you know that READING to your child at home, even in your native language, can boost their success in school? We challenge you to be a literacy role model by reading to all of the children in your life, not just your own children, but nephews, nieces, cousins, even teenagers and young adults enjoy hearing books read to them. Do you ever wonder what books to choose to read with children? Check out this website, head to your local library or ask a teacher for books they would recommend.
