HOBART | Early Learning Center media specialist Sherri Eberle is on a quest to get students and parents back to the basics of connecting by playing board games at home.

The ELC will be hosting its very first Family Game Night from 5-7 p.m. today at the school, 400 N Wilson St.

"I'm an advocate for connecting with kids," said Eberle. "If we can help parents spend quality time with their kids, everybody benefits."

Last Thursday, Eberle and Sharp School Services manager Beth Black hosted parent/grandparent volunteers in order to train them to become game leaders/demonstrators at the event. They will be stationed at the tables tonight to assist parents and students with questions.

"It just makes learning more fun," said Jon Turpa, Family Game Night volunteer and father. "Laughter and fun makes learning a better experience, especially when children don't know their learning. It's great to turn off the television and have some old-fashioned fun."
