One Book. Two Books. Three Books. Four.

  • (March 2, 2023) With one book, two books, three books, four, District schools welcomed readers galore!

    The Read Across America initiative of the National Education Association has been celebrated nationwide since 1998 and with much gusto throughout the Yonkers Public Schools. With thanks to a hearty corps of guest readers, the annual literacy celebration delights and inspires one and all!

    Special guests visited Eugenio María de Hostos MicroSociety School, including Superintendent of Schools Dr. Edwin M. Quezada, Board of Education Vice President Dr. Rosalba Corrado Del Vecchio, and Trustees Sheila Greenwald and Rosemarie P. Linton.

    The children love meeting elected officials and were treated to visits from Mayor Mike Spano, City Council President Lakisha Collins-Bellamy, and Council members Corazon Pineda-Isaac, John Rubbo, and Shanae V. Williams.

    Special thanks to Hostos Principal Elda Perez-Mejia, Assistant Principal Kimberly O'Connell, the wonderful teachers, and the magnificent students and families.
