In this fourth installment of parent literacy nights for parents of children grades K-2 in the North Canton City Schools, the library will demonstrate iPad literacy apps for the parents so that they can utilize this technology when they are at the library or at home. The Walsh pre-service teachers will present storytelling for the children.
Parents must register to attend in advance with the North Canton City Schools by eMailing Angela at email@example.com.
