At P.S. 173, reading is always an adventure! Our principal Ms. Garcia and our staff encourage students to begin and end each day with a good book. As we continue our Reading Adventures program, two eager readers are chosen from each class to journey inside P.S. 173’s Reading Adventures Cave! The “Cave”—a giant inflatable tube —is nearly seven feet tall and spans the length of the gym floor.
Coordinated by Mr. Brian Battaglini, the Reading Adventures Cave is prepared every other Friday morning for new winners. Our early-bird bookworms arrive in the gym to enjoy a 20 minute literary adventure inside the cave with friends and a great book.
The Reading Adventures program has hundreds of P.S. 173’s 3rd, 4th and 5th graders arriving with a book in hand, along with the hope of being selected for the next opportunity to “get lost” inside the Reading Adventures Cave with a great book.
