Parents of children at Coral Reef Elementary recently joined their children for a special day at school. The school conducted its bi-annual “Eat Lunch With Your Child” Day on Sept. 22 to celebrate the beginning of the school year and visit the school’s outstanding book fair.
In addition, parents attended the kickoff Parent Teacher Association meeting in the morning to discuss important issues.
“At Coral Reef Elementary, we strive to involve our parents in our education team,” said Dr. Fred Albion, principal. “By inviting them to spend lunch with their children and participate in the book fair, children receive a positive reinforcement in emphasizing the importance of education. Parents also enjoy being a part of their children’s daily lives away from home.”
The day started with the PTA meeting focusing on the yearly budget and a child safety seminar from the Palmetto Bay Policing Unit. Later parents met their children and enjoyed lunch with them. After lunch, many parents took their children to the book fair to select new reading material and bookmarks, pencils, pens and other school supplies. All profits from the book sale benefit Coral Reef Elementary.
Coral Reef Elementary holds “Eat Lunch With Your Child” Day twice a year to correspond with the book fairs. PTA meetings are conducted monthly.
