Palsson Elementary School Kindergarten students benefited from their third Parents as Literacy Supporters (PALS) session, Thursday, January 20.

The PALS program serves to link parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles, up with the Kindergarten students, to help them learn various skills – mainly related to literacy. The program is spread throughout the district, and includes both of the Cowichan Lake area’s elementary schools.

The January 20 session had Palsson Elementary School’s Kindergarten students learning about the alphabet. As such, several games and activities spread throughout Kindergarten teacher Theo Lassche’s classroom were dedicated to teaching students the alphabet.

Due to only one mother and one grandfather showing up to help students out during the morning PALS session, a few Grade 5 students came in, to help their Kindergarten friends with their literacy skills.
