Make plans to join SMPO for Family Reading Night on 5–7 p.m. on Thursday, February 1 2018! You don’t want to miss this year’s event. We have great activities lined up for the entire family including:

  • Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park’s Pinocchio: This Cincinnati treasure is bringing the show to Sands Montessori during Family Reading Night by putting on a live performance of the classic Pinocchio at 6 p.m. This event is FREE to all Sands families and is a great opportunity for families to enjoy a quality show together.
  • *All-ages* Book Swap: Just in time for Read-a-Thon, bring your gently-used-and-loved books with you to Family Reading Night and pick up a few new-to-you titles! This swap is open to all ages — we’re accepting baby books through adult titles so the entire family can shop for a new book or two!
  • Story Time with Caldecott Nominees: Bring your children and listen to select stories nominated for this year’s most distinguished picture books for children.
  • Craft time with Ms. Robyn: We’ll create bookmarks for kids to use as they read books for this year’s Read-a-Thon.
