Anson holds Bingo for Books family night


Plenty of books were handed out during he Anson Elementary School Bingo for Books family night on Nov. 17.

Anson Elementary School held a Bingo for Books family night on Nov. 17. The event drew a total of 225 guests, who enjoyed dozens of pizzas. A representative from Mid-Iowa Community Action was also in attendance, handing out free books and bookmarks.

After the students and families were done eating, they were invited to gather in the media center for literacy-based Bingo games.

The students all received an additional book when they got a “Bingo” and a variety of small prizes for every “Bingo” after that.

“This is such a wonderful parent involvement event, and it gets books into the hands and homes of our students,” said Anson teacher Melissa Ulch.
