A family celebration was held Friday at the Storm Lake Middle School in which students shared their learned reading and math skills with parents; 846 people were in attendance. A free meal was also served and many door prizes were given throughout the event.
"This is the biggest parent event we've ever had," said Principal Diane Jones, adding that everyone was extremely happy with the turnout.
Because SLMS has been designated as a School in Need of Assistance, opportunities for parent involvement is required.
Many math and reading projects were on display and performed. A math fair (similar to the science fair) was held in the gym, students gave book talks, presented puppet shows while reading stories and there were reader's theater performances.
