It is Read Across America Week- and several local school districts are participating.
Students at Mars Area Elementary School will participate by reading books connected to a theme for each day of the week. For example, tomorrow is “One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish” based on the Dr. Seuss classic, and students are invited to wear their favorite color or number.
Read Across America is an annual reading motivation and awareness program that calls for every child to celebrate reading. The week typically falls during the birthday of beloved children’s author Dr. Seuss.
