REED CITY – G.T. Norman Elementary School is hosting a free parent workshop on May 7 to focus on developing children’s reading, writing and overall literacy skills.

An afterschool movie, “The Lorax,” will be shown from 3:30 to 5 p.m. at the school to provide supervision for children. In the meantime, parents will gather from 4 to 5 p.m. for the workshop, followed by dinner for families in attendance. Parents and caregivers of children in preschool through second grade are invited. Door prizes will be given to a few lucky adults.
