Parents, students interact during Café Hoglan


Hoglan Elementary School fourth grader Hannah Seltman reads to her mother Melissa Seltman during Cafe Hoglan on April 28. The event invites parents and other family members to come and read with students while enjoying breakfast.

Hoglan Elementary School held its fourth Café Hoglan of the school year on April 28. The event invites parents to arrive several minutes before school starts and read with their children while they all enjoy breakfast.

Each student who had a parent, grandparent or other relative attend got to take a book home with them.

On average, 90 parents showed up for each of the four Café Hoglan events this school year.

“We hope to make this an event that happens every year,” said Hoglan teacher Katlyn Brekke.

The event is funded via a grant from the AEA, with matching $750 funds from Team Hoglan, the school’s parent-teacher organization.
