World Read Aloud Day!

 

 For 10 years World Read Aloud Day (WRAD) has raised awareness to  the importance of sharing stories by encouraging participants to choose a book, find an audience, and read aloud!  This                  movement has gone viral and is celebrated in over 173 countries and counting!  Every year, on World Read Aloud Day, people all around the globe read aloud together and share stories to advocate         for literacy as a  basic human right.  This is the first year that PS/IS 268 has joined the movement and we were privileged to have  Author, Mr. Kenji L. Jackson, visit our school to read aloud  as well as  share in a creative writing workshop with our students. 

[ Author, Mr. Kenji L.  Jackson reads aloud:  198F61DF-D6CA-4531-A3FA-747EC84850E9 1(1).mp4 ]

Dad's bring your child to school ~September 18, 2018

As part of New York State’s commitment to promote responsible fatherhood, one day in September has been set aside for fathers and father-figures to take their children to school as a way of becoming more involved in their child’s education throughout the year.  Once again Councilman Daneek Miller attended  P.S./ I.S. 268 's "Dad's bring your child to school day"  imparting wonderful community initiatives that fathers [and all those in the  community] could take advantage of for the progression of our students and their families.  Fathers were treated to light refreshments provided by our wonderful P.T.A.  and an engaging program organized by our Parent Coordinator, Ms. Simms.
