Fall family reading night at East Iredell Elementary School earlier this week drew in approximately 300 visitors. The school had activities for families as well as a musical performance by the third- and fourth-graders.


East Iredell Elementary School’s recent family reading night was a big success.

Principal Jennifer Ribbeck Ribbeck, who was dressed up as Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz, and the Cobra mascot welcomed around 300 students and families.

The staff served pizza and drinks in the school cafeteria. Third- and fourth-graders performed some songs and then attendees participated in breakout sessions. 

Students participated in a mask making session and book walk, which is like a cake walk, but students won a book instead of cake.

“It was such an amazing and successful night. You could feel the excitement in the family atmosphere,” Ribbeck said.

  1. What a great idea! Reminds me of all the fun I used to have at Halloween Carnival at my grade school back in the old days (1960s).
