Parent Literacy Night
Parent Literacy Night was held on October 28th, 2014 at Kelly Elementary for all Pre-K and Kindergarten parents and guardians. We welcomed Guest Speakere Kim “Character” Adley and enjoyed a night of Literacy.
Over the past nine years, Kim has created 16 original characters that focus on various literary and seasonal themes. Each fully costumed character combines original stories, trade books, songs, finger plays, and lots of audience partici-pation. The storytelling sessions are always learning experiences as well as en-tertainment. She has performed her many characters at schools, libraries, pri-vate parties, and corporate events. Since 2003, Kim’s characters have been working with WQED’s Education Resource Center visiting schools to promote and encourage reading for several literacy programs.
