EGG-Stravaganza A Hit For A Second Year In A Row
On April 17, Zone 126 hosted the 2nd Annual EGG-Stravaganza event at PS 171Q for students in Kindergarten and 1st Grade. Our little Egg Hunters scouted high and low throughout the school’s library as they discovered colorful eggs filled with delightful treats.
Zone 126 staff and student interns from Long Island City High School worked to plan and support this annual event that is becoming a tradition. The hunt for the golden eggs were all that students and staff could talk about. The lucky students who discovered the golden eggs received an egg-xtra special prize to take home. That prize was a brand new age-appropriate book for students to take home to build their own home library.
Zone 126 is making literacy a main building block in our Neighborhood Community School’s efforts. Our steadfast commitment to building literacy using cross collaboration was once again highlighted during this years EGG-Stravaganza event. Events such as Cocoa Mingle and EGG-Stravaganza have come to be a part of what students, their families and our school community look forward too. These events create a positive and long lasting memory for all the children, and continue to encourage a curiosity for reading as well as learning. In an ever- growing digital age where students are continuously bombarded by information technology, Zone 126 continues to ensure that we put students on a path to success by fostering lifelong habits, such as reading.
Ms. Kelly Kielar, the School Librarian at PS 171Q stated “the Zone 126 Egg-Stravaganza collaboration between the school and Long Island City High School is an “egg-tastic event! Our students had so much fun, and we want to thank everyone for the memories that our students will hold close to their hearts.” Thus it is fitting that what former First Lady of the United States of America, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis once said:
“There are many little ways to enlarge your child’s world. Love of books is the best of all.”
