Glen Head Reading Celebration Begins 
Adventure Awaits on Every Page
On January 17, 2023, the annual Glen Head School Reading Celebration began with all K-5 students in the gym. Principal Dr. Peter Rufa hosted the Opening Ceremony with the theme, “Adventure Awaits on Every Page.”

During the celebration, Glen Head students will be reading various books related to the theme. Special guest author, John Rocco, will be in town visiting with the students. Parents will be guest readers and will have the opportunity to read wonderful stories or works of poetry related to the theme to their child’s class. In addition, the Glen Head Book Swap with other Glen Head School students will take place.

During the opening Reading Celebration Ceremony, Principal Rufa read “Books Do Not Have Wings” by Brynne Barnes. It is a “whimsical, rhyming tale whirls readers through all the fantastic things that can be found between the pages of a book.”

As in the past, students are always encouraged to read and write throughout the year, but for the celebration, students will be inspired to read at home and use their Book Bucks to enter to win a reading raffle prize. The fifth grade Glen Head Headliners sang at the end of the opening ceremony, and everyone happily joined in! The closing ceremony will take place on Friday, January 27, 2023.
