PiscatawayREADS - April 1, 2015



APRIL 1, 2015

PiscatawayREADS is a community-based initiative to promote reading and the enhancement of literacy among all its members. Literacy, the ability to read, write, and communicate clearly, facilitates success in school and in life and guides us in social and cultural interactions. 

To promote participation in the event, students throughout the district are provided with free age-appropriate books.  Students must commit to reading their books before the April 1st program, at which time they will take part in discussion groups, storytelling activities, and more.

     This year’s theme is "Justice: Standing Up for What’s Right."

     This year’s Piscataway Reads event begins at 7:00 PM and ends at 8:45 PM on Wednesday April 1 at Piscataway High School, but please arrive early to register and to make sure your children get to their first activities in plenty of time.  Registration will be in the Respect Hallway and you can enter through the East Wing doors (#1 and #2) or through the ROTC/Anthony Gym doors. 

     We will be collecting used books that evening, books that we give to our students in the summer as part of our Piscataway Reads Bookshelves program.  If you have any questions about Piscataway Reads please contact Robert Coleman, District Supervisor of Literacy and Humanities at rcoleman@pway.org or at 732-572-2289, ext. 2589.

This year’s books are:
