Press of Atlantic City: New Charter School in Atlantic City Focuses on Literacy
By DIANE D’AMICO
ATLANTIC CITY — The focus of the new Atlantic City Community Charter School is literacy and that includes sending books home every night for students to read with their families....
The Eagles Book Mobile and Storybook Man visited Atlantic City Community Charter School this week.
Storybook Man read to students and distributed books for them to take home.
Every summer and fall, the Eagles Book Mobile travels to hundreds of Philadelphia area schools, shelters, libraries, recreation centers and summer camps. At each site the Eagles Storybook Man reads aloud to children and distributes a free, new book to each child, most of whom have never owned a book."
