This past Thursday, families with young children in Fox Lake once again had the opportunity to attend “Magic Carpet Ride” at Fox Lake Elementary School.
Sponsored by Kayas as part of the Community Adult Learning Program, the event is run weekly in John D’or Prairie and Fox Lake. Young learners and their parents participate in activities that encourage reading at an early age, and introduces strategies for parents to get involved with their child’s learning.
The inaugural session for the 2016-17 school year saw a large turnout, marking the program’s continued popularity. The younger attendees were read a story about the changing of the seasons by program facilitator and Fox Lake Elementary teacher Dave Barr, while his co-facilitator Danielle Lapenna – also a teacher at FLE – prepared the follow-up activity: creating and decorating leaves in autumn colours.
Magic Carpet Ride runs each Thursday at 7:00 pm at Fox Lake Elementary. All community members with young children are invited to attend.
