Through the generosity of the Warwick Foundation for Excellence in Learning (WFEL) and the Park Avenue PTA, every child at Park Avenue Elementary School received a copy of the Newbery Honor-winning book, Mr. Popper’s Penguins, by Richard and Florence Atwater.

For the production, students created a life-size freezer filled with snow, ice, and penguin buddies, which were distributed to students along with the books.
