Dine, Dream and Discover at the Library!
Algonquin Middle School held a "Dine, Dream and Discover" family event at the Des Plaines Public Library in December.
About 35 people attended the event, which was made possible by a grant from the D62 Education Foundation.
Algonquin Middle School students and their families enjoyed a pizza dinner and cookies. Attendees then made dreamcatcher crafts and took a guided tour of the library.
Students also participated in a scavenger hunt and received free passes to the Brookfield Zoo, courtesy of the Des Plaines Public Library.
Families also had the chance to sign up for library cards if they did not already have them.
A special thank you to AMS Reading Specialist Susan Marks for writing the grant and organizing this fun community event.
Stay tuned for similar District 62 community events in the future!
