During the week of Jan. 2, both Munsey Park (MP) and Shelter Rock (SR) Elementary Schools welcomed local luminaries to “Guess Who’s Coming To Read,” an annual program in which members of the community read books to children in grades K-3. As per tradition, the identities of the readers were unknown to the students until the readers walked through their classroom door, making this highly anticipated event even more fun and exciting.
Mrs. Hall-Moran’s second-graders had a healthy appreciation for Dr. Richard Roberts, who is also a Munsey Park grad.
