On the third Friday of every month, students at Oquirrh Hills Elementary set their alarms and wake up early to participate in the school’s Parents and Pastries literacy event. Parents and Pastries is a monthly activity intended to encourage students and parents to read together. Students are invited to bring their parents before school to read a book together, and once they’ve completed their book, everyone is rewarded with a delicious donut!
Often times, due to schedule restrictions, many students’ parents are unable to join them. We’ve been fortunate to have dedicated volunteers from inContact who have made time to join students and sit in the hallways to read. We are grateful for the employees of inContact and their continued commitment and support of the students at Oquirrh Hills! Thank you for LIVING UNITED!
If you or someone you know is interested in getting more involved in literacy improvement efforts in our community, we are always looking for book donations (lightly used books for children ranging in ages of 2 to 18). For those looking to become an ongoing reading volunteer, visit our website for more information on the Read. Graduate.
