Sponsored by the Port Washington Public Library and SEPTA (Special Education PTA), Creative Readers is an inclusion program where elementary students, K-2 and 3-5, are paired with high school buddies.
Together they explore literature using theater, music, movement and art.
Developed by Elise May, Creative Readers mission is to increase the joy of reading by turning books into a multi-sensory experience offering all learners the ability to be challenged, motivated and successful.
Its secondary goal, of no less importance, is to offer a space for unique learners of all kinds, some of whom are schooled outside the district, to socialize in their community and work together creatively.
The program runs three times a year and meets on Saturday mornings in the library’s Lapham Room.
