Monday, March 2 was national Read Across America Day! Read Across America Day is a reading celebration sponsored by the National Education Association that takes place annually on March 2—Dr. Seuss’s birthday. Across the country, thousands of schools, libraries, and community centers participate by bringing together kids and books. Several programs in Northeast Metro 916 participated in the event, including Valley Crossing (pictured) who added special reading time into their schedule and invited community volunteers to read to the students.
