Lee-Jackson Elementary School held its second annual Reading Night program on Nov. 17. More than 200 parents and students took part in the free program, which included a lasagna dinner prepared by Nelda Gibbs and her cafeteria staff. The program is held to give parents the tools to help their children develop a lifelong love of reading. In top photo, Martha Razor, WHRO’s Early Childhood Coordinator, points out some of the items available at her table to parent Shirley Winters and her children, second grader Dominic and first grader Chloe. Each child was able to select a free book from WHRO. In bottom photo, Gale Hood reads to a group of elementary school children gathered around her on the auditorium stage. Photos by Charlie Koenig
