Lanai Events


Literacy Fair Thank You

Our incredible PTA put on an ambitious two-day Literacy Fair in honor of Read Across America Day (Dr. Seuss’ Birthday). Miki Chase and her team of parent volunteers lead numerous literacy activities with the children, like playing a customized version of Mad Libs, inviting them to dress up as life-sized prefixes and suffixes to form words, and helping them create detective stories. Thanks again to our Lanai volunteers, whose creativity and dedication continues to have a direct, positive impact on our entire student body.
