Family Readers Day is a time at the local schools when parents, grandparents, uncles and community leaders can come on campus and read with the children.
Wednesday was the day that Oakwood, Campbell Hall, Carpenter, Rio Vista Elementary School and Valley View had times when parents came in and flipped through a book with their children.
This time of year it was spooky Halloween stories for the most part. In Suzi Reisman's second grade class at Valley View, one parent ducked into a "reading cave" that the students created. (See video.)
Some schools invite the parents in two or three times a year to read with the students in class.
