Project Cicero concluded last week and was a huge success! The media center’s initial goal was to collect 600 books, but after three weeks, Lewis F. Cole students and faculty amassed over 1,000 new and gently used books. This is an accomplishment we can all be proud of. The following homerooms had 100% participation, with each student bringing in at least one book:
- Homeroom 105, led by Ms. Giannattasio & Mrs. Luciano
- Homeroom 107, led by Mrs. Murphy & Ms. Steckler
- Homeroom 110, led by Mrs. Nugent & Mrs. Lepore
- Homeroom 111, led by Mrs. Ruesga & Ms. Yundi
- Homeroom 112, led by Mrs. Delserro & Mr. Zappel
- Homeroom Art led by Mrs. Anderson & Mr. Adams
The 7th and 8th grade homerooms which brought in the most books were:
- 7th Grade Homeroom 112, led by Mrs. Delserro & Mr. Zappel, collected 140 books.
- 8th Grade Homeroom 111, led by Mrs. Ruesga & Ms. Yundi, collected 118 books.
Thank you to everyone who participated in Project Cicero. As a result of our efforts, on Saturday, March 8th, more than 300 teachers from various New Jersey schools had the opportunity to select books for their classrooms and libraries.
