NJEA’s Cat In The Hat Visits PRDS
Students at the Piscataway Regional Day School (PRDS) were treated to an early visit from the New Jersey Education Association’s seven foot 'Cat in the Hat', in advance of Read Across America, the annual nationwide celebration of reading.
Wearing the traditional red and white stovepipe hat, the Cat in the Hat, (retired teacher, Marie Dicks), also gave the school a copy of One Fish, Two Fish; Red Fish, Blue Fish.
The Read Across America celebration concludes on March 2, the day after what would have been the 114th birthday of Theodore Seuss Geisel, known as Dr. Seuss, the children’s book author.
The PRDS offers specialized programs for students ages 3-21 with multiple disabilities. The PRDS is one of six schools operated by the Educational Services Commission of New Jersey, which also offers special education services to school districts statewide, coordinates transportation services for over 10,000 students, and manages a Co-op Pricing System, with more than 1,100 members, the largest cooperative buying program in New Jersey.
