About Community Read

This year we're doing monthly community reads, which means all classrooms will be reading the same picture book in all grades. Families will be invited in on the last Friday of each month to come into their child's classroom, read the book together, then do a related activity. 

About Community Read

Parents and families are an integral part of the P.S. 171 school community. On the last Friday of each month, our school welcomes our parents and families between 8:00 am and 9:15 am. During this time, parents and families participate in a read-aloud of a shared community text and engage in discussion with their child, other parents and family members, and the teacher. Please see the schedule date and times for our 2018-2019 Community Read initiative. 

If you need to request time off from your employment to assist your child's Community Read, use the following file to get a copy of the letter to your employer from our school.

We look forward to sharing this read aloud and a related activity with our families in classrooms on Friday morning, October 26th. Please see the Community Read Calendar posted around the school on dismissal doors and also posted here on the website for more details.
