News of the Day
Here's what's happening in our schools!
Read Across America Week is a nationwide celebration of reading and literacy, designed to encourage the love of reading in school, at home, and in the community. The annual event coincides with the birthday of Theodor Geisel, better known as “Dr. Suess.” Here are a few of the activities taking place in our schools:
- Randolphville School welcomes children’s author Kim Norman. Conackamack students will share their favorite books and quotes on a book recommendation board.
- Arbor students will have Pajama Day and will line the hallways for a school-wide reading session.
- PHS students will list their favorite books on “What We’re Reading” boards.
- Quibbletown students will be reading at Children’s Corner PreSchool and Eisenhower.
- King students will be writing about their favorite books written by Dr. Seuss.
- Guest readers from the Piscataway community will visit Knollwood School, and the PTO hosts their annual Book Fair this week.
- Schor students are taking the “Dr. Seuss Parts of Speech Challenge,” labeling the parts of speech as they read One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish.
- Grandview students will return to their last year’s classroom to read to younger students, and grade-level “Read Aloud” assemblies will be conducted.
In other news, two student authors at Piscataway High School received recognition for their entries in the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards, a juried competition sponsored by the Alliance for Young Artists and Writers. Congratulations to:
