Books = Brain Power
Zone 126 sprang into the spring season by hosting an Egg-Stravaganza Hunt at PS 171Q for students in Pre-Kindergarten through 1st grade. Zone 126 bunnies hopped into the school library and hid eggs with sweet treats along the shelves of books, with several Golden Eggs strategically placed for some lucky students to discover. The prize for discovering the Golden Egg was a brand new book for students to select amongst some wonderful titles such as Last One Is A Rotten Egg, It’s Spring, Too Many Carrots, and Thumper Finds An Egg.
Students were very excited to find the Golden Egg, and to have the opportunity to select a book of their choice to add to their home library.
Zone 126’s long-term goal is to ensure that all students living in the Zone or attending a partner school are college and/or career ready. This goal is deeply rooted around our work continuous efforts to promote the importance of literacy. Ensuring students have access to age-appropriate books that are culturally relevant inside the home, at school and in the library is something we strive to ensure alongside our partner organizations.
As Zone 126 and our partner organizations work collaboratively around ensuring Kindergarten readiness, 3rd grade reading proficiency, and on time high school completion, we will continue to provide opportunities to students and families that build the most important muscle, THE BRAIN.
