On January 31st the Verne Critz PTA, Dr. Munisteri, building principal and teachers at the Verne Critz School joined together for the annual Snuggle Up and Read event. The classrooms were decorated by parent volunteers to coordinate with the themes of each story. This year’s themes were: Piggie Pie, The English Pioses, Hansel and Gretel, Chicka, Chicka, Boom Boom!, Enemy Pie, Clementine in the City, Lasso Lou, Camilla the Cupcake Fairy, The 3 Little Pigs & The 3 Cajun Pigs, Snowmen, Miss Smith’s Incredible Storybook and Skippyjon Jones. The teachers were also in character and dressed up for this special event.

Prior to the evening the students made their selections for their reading adventure. Each student was then issued a passport which reflected the stories and the rooms they would travel to. The students arrived in their pajamas and cuddled up to hear these wonderful stories. Special thanks to the teachers for volunteering their time to read and the parents for sharing their time to decorate the classroom doors!  The students, teachers and parents all agreed that this evening was a success!
