RAHWAY—Elementary students of the Rahway Public Schools and their families share a special evening with Superintendent Frank R. Buglione recently.
A district-wide initiative, annual “Family Reading Nights” are held at the Rahway Public Library. This year, on March 3, students from Franklin and Madison Schools met in the auditorium at the library; a similar event was held on March 10 for the students from Roosevelt and Grover Cleveland schools.
The evening began with the children gathered around Buglione as he read “Bats at the Library” by Brian Lies. Once the story and a brief question/answer session were over, the children returned to their parents seated at tables. Instructed to read and follow directions, the families then began to assemble “edible insects”.
They created ladybugs using cookies, icing and mini-chocolate chips. Directions were also available for Inchworms (mini-cookies, vanilla icing and gumdrops) and spiders (crackers, pretzels and peanut butter.)
Pictured is Cindy Zatorski, a second grade teacher at Grover Cleveland School along with Board of Education members Lillie Henderson and Richard Trocciola, who helped the children get the ingredients for their ladybugs.
