On Tuesday February 10th, Franklin School partnered with United Way of Newark, participating in “Celebrity Read.”  Celebrity Read is a literacy initiative spanning the month of February that recruits volunteers to model their love of reading and the pursuit of Education as a pathway to success in local elementary schools.  Mrs. Marlaina Melker, Library Media Specialist at Franklin School, invited several town “Celebrity Readers” to come and read aloud to several classes.  The volunteers ranged from Franklin School retirees, as well as members of the Kearny Police Department, Kearny Fire Department, and Kearny Board of Education.  The special event was quite a success! Thank you to all who participated!
