Every day, as students enter PS 241, they walk across a mat that says, “Read as if your life depends on it”. Could we have found a better match for Behind the Book programs?
We’ve seen this go-getter attitude in the students we’ve worked with. From the second grade class who screamed in excitement when we explained we were going to publish their writing, to the 4th grade class that took persuasive writing to a whole new level by challenging their local bodega to offer a sale on sandwiches, students at PS 241 have read, written, edited and made art with gusto.
We are very excited to partner with PS 241 to build their community of readers and writers.
