The Title I program at George Ward Elementary School sponsored a unique activity in October. To encourage family reading, the school held a Snuggle Up and Read night. Students and their families were encouraged to bring their blanket and snuggle up on the school’s front lawn and read a good book (or two!). Everyone received a snack and a snuggle buddy stuffed animal. Read Aloud West Virginia donated 400 books so each student had a book to read and they took home, along with their snuggle buddy. Around 100 people attended and some even came in their pajamas. Due to the outstanding success of the evening, George Ward Title I hopes to make it an annual event.
