Students Celebrate a Love of Reading with Project Cicero
March 09, 2018
Last week, 4th graders helped collect books in support of Project Cicero, which has placed almost 3 million books in under-resourced New York City public school classrooms. Together, Center for Early Childhood and Lower School students collected 12 large boxes of books and over $100 dollars in donations. If you have additional books to donate, our collection boxes will be in the lobby until next Tuesday, March 13.
In honor of Project Cicero and our ongoing commitment to fostering a love of reading as a school community, students read and reflected together throughout the day. 1st and 5th graders paired up as reading buddies, 3rd graders and PK4 students shared stories they had written with each other, and 4th and 5th graders participated in a read aloud of The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore by award winning author and illustrator William Joyce.
