Students lined the halls in their pajamas as the sun set over Holley-Navarre Primary School Jan. 29. The evening, dubbed as a “literacy family night,” included three different stations focused on reading.

Principal Barbara Scott hosted the “Launch into Reading” station in which she read “Amelia Bedelia” to students while dressed in a flight suit.
