COAL TOWNSHIP - Shamokin Area Elementary School will host Meet the Teacher nights to allow parents and guardians to visit their children's classrooms to meet the teachers and learn more about the curriculum, school rules and policy.

The schedule has been arranged so each grade is meeting at a different time or on a different date. Each session will begin with a presentation by the teacher and will last approximately 30 minutes. The program is designed as an information session rather than just an open house visit.

The schedule is as follows:

Monday, Sept. 15 - First grade, 6 p.m., Annex; fourth grade, 7 p.m.

Tuesday, Sept. 16 - Second grade, 6 p.m.; fifth grade, 7 p.m.

Wednesday, Sept. 17 - Third grade, 6 p.m., sixth grade, 7 p.m.

Remedial reading specialists, learning support, speech and language teachers and some Central Susquehanna Intermediate Unit teachers will also be present to talk to parents about their particular programs.

To encourage students' reading endeavors and to increase reading skills, a book fair will be held on the stage from 6 to 8 p.m. on each Meet the Teacher evening. Parents will be able to purchase books for children from Scholastic Books. Any parents interested in helping with the book far are asked to call the office at 570-648-5721.
