Lenkerville Elementary School held a literacy night on Monday, February 27, 2017 which was sponsored by the school district and the Lenkerville PTO. The evening was designed for families to come and share in stories and activities provided by our teachers and staff, provide an opportunity for families to gain literacy resources, and to have fun at the PTO Book Fair.
