Weekly Roundup: digital crime, Read Across America, kindness initiative

Catch up on what happened this week in Tabernacle.

Sun Editorial: New Jersey residents fear crime — digital crime

Ever get a phone call from the “IRS” stating the cops are coming for you if you don’t buy a few gift cards to pay off your “debt”? How about an email saying your bank account has been compromised? All you have to do is click a link and enter your personal information to clear everything up.

These are scams. And, according to a recent study, a lot of New Jersey residents are afraid of them.

‘The more that you read, the more things you will know’

Carter Naurath, Ella Fitzpatrick, Mackenzie Smith, Jakob Garrett, Madalin Donnolley, Lucy Skare, John Requa, Noah Zarroli, Liam Wright-Laudicina and Cameron Grant engage in the reading train held at Tabernacle Elementary School on March 1 as a part of Read Across America week.

“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”

That famous quote by Dr. Seuss summarizes the motive behind Read Across America Week at Tabernacle Elementary School.

The school celebrated Dr. Seuss’ birthday with a week full of activities to get the students engaged and excited about reading.

The week began with “If I Ran the Zoo Day” where students dressed up as their favorite zoo animal, snuggled up and read a good book, Whoville Hair Day, Dr. Seuss Character Day, and hats off to Dr. Seuss where students sported their crazy hats in honor of the author.

Preparing kids to change the world

“Be kinder than is necessary.”

Third-grade teachers Stacie Delaney and Michael Dunlea used this quote from the book titled “Wonder” by R. J. Palacio to motivate their students for a lifetime of compassion.

Delaney and Dunlea implement various kindness initiatives into their classroom — most recently introducing a district-wide “Peace Signs Project.” This project was inspired by Melissa Collins and her second-grade students in Memphis, Tenn., after partnering with the National Civil Rights Museum to organize the first-ever student silent demonstration march to take place on what would have been Martin Luther King Jr.’s 90th birthday.
