More than 50 attendees enjoyed BEPAC’s Family Engagement Night where families got the chance to experience fun new ways to keep up learning in the home especially over the upcoming holiday break.

Families with students in grades k-5 made their way around stations in the Oak Lawn-Hometown Middle School’s cafetorium playing games, learning new word relationships and tips for keeping up with curriculum while at home like keeping a journal. At the end of the night, each family got to take home a gift bag full of educational goodies.

“The K-2 bags have the games and flashcards and are a bit more literary focused, while the 3-5 are more comprehension based and incorporate a little more of that science and math curriculum,” said Angie Goetz the English Learner Program Director for District 123.

Books were also in the gift bags, to help encourage students to keep reading over the break. BEPAC meets once a month.
