Reading Night 2017

Cankton Elementary held its annual Family Reading Night. Our SUPER students visited six superhero- themed literacy stations which focused on skills such as comparison/contract, making inferences, questioning, and more. Once students and parents visited all of the stations, they received a do-it-yourself comic book.
