We Thank Parents, Rowan Faculty, Staff and Friends for Making Our Hispanic Heritage Read-In a Success!


We count ourselves lucky to have so many wonderful volunteers in our community! Parents, Rowan faculty, Glassboro School District staff and friends visited our classrooms on October 19 for Bullock's Hispanic Heritage Read-In. These volunteers took turns reading in classrooms throughout the building. Children enjoyed hearing books that included Spanish vocabulary words, featured other countries and/or were written by Hispanic authors.
