Deauville Gardens East Elementary School held a Primary Literacy Night on Jan. 24 for students in kindergarten through second grade. Close to 100 students – dressed in their cozy pajamas – along with their families were in attendance.

The evening started with a writing presentation from Deauville Gardens East guidance counselor and resident author Lysa Mullady. Families gathered in the gymnasium to hear about the inspiration for her writing and how feelings can be developed into stories. Ms. Mullady then did a read aloud of her book, “Bye Bye Pesky Fly.”

After the story, students moved into classrooms to write their own books about their feelings. The young writers created their books about feelings, and each student received a bag with a book and pencil to take home.
