Each school year, Wexler-Grant Community School and many schools around the country host book fairs to promote literacy. The Wexler-Grant teachers decided to get more families involved and host a PJ Party that showcased the book fair. Students were asked to attend in their pj's and bring their families in for a night of reading. The school provided mats along the halls so everyone would have somewhere comfy to sit and read either new books they purchased from the fair, or borrow one of the many books the library has to offer. All students that attended received a "No Homework" pass for that night, and their names were put into a raffle where they had the chance to win one of $100 worth of free books. There was also milk, cider, and cookies for all of the attendees. In total, we had over 100 people come to the PJ Party. We have many more great events coming up, so make sure to check out the Wexler-Grant Boost! Twitter account (@WGBoost) for updates and details on the events happening at the school!
