Kindergarten and first-grade families and teachers at North School gathered for the school’s first Parent Literacy Night from 7 to 8 p.m. Sept. 18. The goal, according to Seema Sabharwal, a seventh-grade teacher at North, was to get the families of the young students excited about reading. Participants were encouraged to dress as favorite characters, and a light meal and dessert were donated by Olive Garden and Home Town Buffet.
