Fourth Graders’ ClassroomsCare Project Will Bring Literature to Military Families

EDISON—Fourth graders in Ellen Colandrea’s at The Wardlaw-Hartridge School in North Edison recently rose to a Scholastic Book Clubs’ challenge by reading over 50 books well before May 14. Because of their efforts, Scholastic Book Clubs will donate 250,000 books to children on military bases.

ClassroomsCare is a philanthropy-based literacy campaign through which children learn the importance of both reading and giving.

Pictured above, holding some of the books they read and the certificates they received for their efforts, are: (front row) Gursimran Singh of Piscataway, J. Griffin Gonzalez of Rahway, Audrey Cheng of Colonia, Mia Reyes of Sayreville, Noelle Sperrazza of East Brunswick, and (back row) Raj Raval of South Plainfield, Clayton Lee of Edison, Alexandra Johnson of Plainfield, Rishi Yasa of Edison, Michael Andronov of Edison and Hannah Yates of Piscataway.
