This week our NJHS students is lead the way spreading the joy of reading during "Read Across Merchantville School Week" and kicked off the festivities with buddy reading sessions, fostering a love for books from elementary to middle school. Our retired teachers - Ms. Fields, Ms. Turan, Ms. Harvey-Wilson, Ms. Ransom, and Ms. Batterman - returned as guest readers demonstrating their dedication to instilling a love of reading and lifelong enthusiasm and commitment to educational learning. And, a huge shoutout to the incredible Merchantville community for joining us as guest readers and exemplifying the importance of fostering a love for literature

in our learners. Our students had a blast walking around the community and participating in engaging read-aloud sessions. Special thanks to the Merchantville Police Department,  Merchantville Fire Department - Niagra fire Company, Merchantville Library, The Blue Monkey Tavern, and The Station Coffee for your enthusiastic participation and unwavering support Merchantville School also had the pleasure of hosting the talented author Tami Charles during Read Across Merchantville week.
