Thomas Paine Elementary School celebrates New Jersey's Week of Respect Day of Respect Thomas Paine for Briefing.jpg
This past Wednesday, I had the privilege of visiting Thomas Paine Elementary School on Church Road, where I served as a guest reader during the district’s annual observance of New Jersey’s Week of Respect. For about 45 minutes, I met with Principal Kirk Rickansrud and the students in Mrs. Little’s Kindergarten class. We read the story of "Stellaluna," a bat who is separated from her mother, and in trying to find her way back home, learns a great deal about the things that make her similar to and different from other animals. Our reading session was followed by a brief discussion about the importance of treating others with respect, even when there are differences between us. I was proud to take part in this year’s Week of Respect, which is observed in schools across New Jersey the first week of October every year. Thank you to Principal Rickansrud and Thomas Paine for inviting me to be involved.
