PS 247 celebrated Red Nose day. Sponsored by the Comic Relief Fund is for helping children overcome poverty and social injustice.
NYC Reads 365 challenges New Yorkers to read every single day. Read for pleasure, read to find out, read to argue, read to persuade, read to laugh, read to cry, read to understand, read to forget. Help us create a new generation of readers.
As part of the New York City Reads 365 initiative, our school was sent many wonderful books to get our students started. Posted outside the library are the reading lists for grades K-5. Stop by the library to check out our new books!
For more information, read the press release for NYC Reads 365.
