School Eleven's Second Annual Reading under the Stars was a great success despite the unseasonably cold temperatures.  Students and their families enjoyed Star Lab, the district-owned mobile, inflatable planetarium, built their own marshmallow constellations, entered the Black Hole Reading Nook and learned about the moon and telescopes during mini-tutorials presented by staff in several classrooms.  The North Jersey Astronomical Group (NJAG) kindly volunteered their services, setting up several telescopes on the grounds outside, offering everyone a glimpse of the heavens above.
