With a goal to help fourth grade Dozier Elementary students relax, read, and enjoy the school environment prior to upcoming LEAP testing, “Friday Night Frenzy” was held in the school’s cafeteria on Friday, February 18, 2016 from 7:00 until 9:00 PM. The reading based event was a reinvented form of the school’s past Friday Night Prime Time Reading program that was held annually throughout the nineties.

Students returned in their pajamas at 7:00 PM and brought books to read, a sleeping bag, pillow, and snacks. Each student was allowed to bring one parent to enjoy the event with them. Silent reading periods, exercise fun, games, guest readers and snacks were all part of the program.

The special guest readers were Margo Butler LeBlanc, a retired teacher and grandmother to one of the 4th grade students and Erath Mayor John Earl LeBlanc.

As students, guests, parents and teachers left the rejuvenated program at 9:00 PM, they had the same reaction as from the former program. No matter which decade, both programs (Friday Night Prime Time and Friday Night Frenzy) definitely had common threads binding the two. Evident at the end of both through the years, were fun times tied to reading, relaxed students, and a trail of smiles, as they headed home with memories that will last a lifetime.
