The My First Tie Experience

Crafted by the esteemed author and founder of The Black Man Can, Dr. Brandon Frame, this initiative aimed to inspire, empower, and celebrate the rites of passage among our students. Through the engaging children’s book “My First Tie,” students were encouraged to share their stories, connect with peers, and foster a sense of belonging. My First Tie
Hosted by the Department of Educational Support Services, this collaboration underscored our district’s commitment to social and emotional learning, nurturing a love for reading and essential life skills among our scholars. Each student received a signed copy of “My First Tie” book and an actual tie, serving as tangible reminders of the day’s lessons and the endless possibilities ahead. 
We extend our heartfelt gratitude to Dr. Frame for including the East Orange School District in his impactful “My First Tie Experience” Tour.My First Tie
