RANDOLPH, NJ - Throughout the months of January and February, The Goddard School in Randolph (a TAPinto Roxbury sponsor) has been participating in a Book Drive to help collect new and gently used books for the Bridge of Books Foundation.

The school set a personal goal of 1,000 books to be donated to underserved children. Through the generous donations of families they exceeded their goal. Bridge of Books plans to distribute the books to children all over the state in advance of Read Across America month.

Along with donations, the Goddard families have joined in the festivities. Many of the parents and family members volunteered to read their favorite stories to their child’s class.

The faculty at The Goddard School in Randolph also got into the spirit of the Book Drive. They each chose their favorite author and decorated their classroom from top to bottom showcasing that author’s stories. The children completed many hands-on activities and crafts incorporated with their author!

A variety of special events were held at The Goddard School throughout the Book Drive.

One event was a visit from a published author, Jolie Della Valle, who wrote the book Georgie and the Ants in the Pants. She used her ukulele to sing to the children and tell her story in a unique way! Dennis the Magician put on a special “Tribute to Dr. Seuss” Magic Show! Finally, Ms. Paula, the school’s music teacher, came in and held a drama class for each of the classrooms. The children dressed up as princes and princesses from their favorite story books and performed skits. Various songs and stories allowed the children to use their imaginations to become each of the characters.

Please contact The Goddard School in Randolph at 973-584-1154 or at randolphnj@goddardschools.com to learn more about the Book Drive and/or our summer and school year educational programming.  You can also visit us on Facebook or our website.

June 10, 2018

Dear Editor,

Much of the debate is based on emotion rather than reasoned thought.
