JKHA Students Kick Off Summer Reading

JKHA’s annual Summer Reading Kickoff was held at Barnes & Noble in the Livingston Mall on Thursday, June 8. The number of students, parents and faculty participants surpassed last year’s attendance. Head of School Rabbi Eliezer Rubin kicked off the event by reading “We’re All Wonder” by R.J. Palacio, a book about seeing beyond someone’s appearance and embracing the wonder in everyone. Guest author, Daniel Kirk, commented on the amazing turnout. He led a drawing workshop where the students learned to draw Sam the mouse from the Library Mouse series. JKHA’s kindergarten teacher Morah Charlotte Keleshian read her book “In Search of the Sun.” Students were amazed to learn that their very own teacher wrote a book! They enjoyed listening to her and her illustrator present. Throughout the afternoon, students enjoyed activities including book bingo, crafts and stories while the parents shopped for summer reading books. As always, it was a wonderful way to kick off the summer, socialize and enjoy the JKHA family.
