May 12th was Family Night at Shapleigh Memorial School. The theme was Camp Read-a-Lot, and the night included camping math and reading activities, the Scholastic Book Fair, making smores, fishing for rhymes, literacy baskets with games, posing for the camp photo booth, and designing and measuring your own fish! Students in Mrs. Harmon’s high school advisory donated over 500 gently used books to SMS under the book drive titled, "Our Shared Shelf." Students were encouraged to choose a book to bring home. Jackson Legare said what he liked best about the night was “books with pictures” and the best activity of the night was…”smores”! Aubrey Perron said she loves to read the Dog Man series. While drawing and coloring a picture of a fish Zander Pinette said he “loves to fish and fishes every night with his dad”. Gabby Richards and Scarlette Frenette tried their hand at fishing for rhymes; Fia Benvie said the best part of the night was “being with my friends”; and Jace White liked “making a puppet” best of all. Korbyn Thibeault, and Aria Hathaway attended with their family.
