Start Your Year of Reading with…Usher

QuitmanStreet UsherWatchtheReplayThrough our partnership with Scholastic and My Very Own Library, a program funded through the Foundation for Newark’s Future, 50 students from Quitman Street Community school were invited to attend a live Webcast with Grammy winning artist, Usher. During the event, Usher spoke to students about how kids can open up a world of possibilities, encouraged students to read and take action, and performed his song “Without You”. Two of our students, 6th grader Saiah Tagoe, and 7th grader Elijah Pollas were selected to ask questions to Usher during the live event. It was truly a once in a lifetime, inspiring experience for our students!
