Bush Elementary School Holds Successful Family Night

Bush Elementary School staff recently held a successful Family Night with over 190 people in attendance as part of their Parents as Reading Partners (PARP) program. The PTA also helped with the night, which included activities, story time and food.

Activities that Bush families could enjoy included: drumming with Rich Schulyer from Jamestown Theater Drum and Dance Circle, a magic show with Mike Baron, a bat presentation by Katie Finch from the Jamestown Audubon Center, story time with Liz Gruber from the Prendergast Library, and information on SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) with Brooke Barone from Chautauqua County.

“We were so pleased with the turnout for Family Night,” said Bush Elementary School Principal, Dan Bracey. “Anything we can do to encourage families to come to Bush School, we are happy to do it. It was a chance for families to have a fun, activity-filed night with their children and we love to see such great participation.”
