Mayor’s Book Club Challenge
It was great to start off the day at the Greico School with 206 first graders who participated in my Mayor’s Book Club inititiave.
The New Jersey State League of Municipalities and Fairleigh Dickinson University’s School of Education collaborated to promote wide reading, literacy engagement, and achievement for first graders. The goal of this initiative is to involve the school, parents, community members, university faculty, and teacher candidates in the local schools to highlight the importance of early literacy. Six schools in Bergen County have been selected to partipate in the Mayor’s Book Club.
A Q & A session was also held withthe students as well as a fun reading skit. School Superientendent Mike Roth, Principal Daniela Small Bailey ,Dr.Cohen-Fairleigh Dickinson University and Mayor Arthur Ondish-Mt Arlington also attended.
I plan to visit Greico School over several occasions to read to the students.
