El Rincon's 1st Grade R eading Party Was A Smash Hit!
In an effort to connect their families to one of the core goals of their 1st Grade Class, teaching neighbors Ms. Tynan and Ms. Carlan are throwing "Reading Parties" every Friday in which they invite parents and family members to their room to read for 30 minutes to their student.  This past Friday, Ms. Tynan's room was alive with the sounds of rhyming words, quotes, onomatopoeia and more.  The best part is, this activity is super-inclusive, super-fun, and indicative of everything Culver City has come to be known for: supportive parents and innovative teachers collaborating to do great things for kids!
