PASSPORT!

One of NewComm's final proposals to Tree House Books was to "divorce privilege from reading." My students argued that all of the new wonderful possibilities of a modern library is often not available to families who live in certain zip codes. Their program Passport--which they brainstormed, tested, edited, and executed--was designed to expose Tree House students to these possibilities at our very own library at Germantown Academy. Students did yoga, played scavenger hunt games, and designed their own stamps for their "passports."  (They got to keep the hand-carved wooden blocks as well.) There was an even snacks, pizza, and storytime. It was an awesome day! Thank you Lauren Popp for allowing us to work with your students this morning. So proud of NewComm. Can't wait for Year 3...
