Celebrating authors and artists, Epiphany Catholic School staged its annual Literacy Night April 10.

Students and their families took a leisurely stroll through the school’s hallways and classrooms, appreciating the showcased work of Epiphany’s own young authors and artists and learning as they went along.

Books of all sorts were on display in classrooms, wandering musicians entertained visitors strolling down the hallways, young poets read their prose in the school’s Prose and Poetry Cafe, the powers of air pressure were demonstrated in the science room, and refreshments were offered in the cafeteria.

The celebration of reading continued when gently used books were offered during a book exchange, and parents left with a list of seven ways they could promote reading and writing at home.

“This is a great night. So much energy, such a great celebration, and such a good turnout. It’s hard to guess how many are here, but we must have more than half the enrollment here with their families. This is such a fun night,” Principal Craig Vana said.
