In a creative effort to show our support for Paterson Public Schools' Attendance Matters Initiative, #SPCDC invited representatives from Rizzo's Reptile Discovery to join us at New Roberto Clemente Full Service Community Middle School yesterday to share their array of box turtles, tree frogs, bearded dragons, and snakes with our students! As you can see, Popcorn the Albino Burmese Python stole the show.
"We all want our kids to show up to school each and every day. As parents and supporters of quality education, we expect those learning spaces to be safe and inviting environments free of all harm. We'll continue to do our part. Our local and national leaders need to do the same. Our kids deserve nothing less." - Richard C. Williams, Executive Director, SPCDC
