Winter Street celebrates Read Across America

Winter Street Elementary School students celebrated Read Across America Week during the first part of March. To celebrate Read Across America Week, Winter Street Elementary School welcomed Winter Street alumni and other guest readers to read to students throughout the day.

Many events were planned during Read Across America Week. A Dr. Seuss Reading Night was held in the evening with more than 100 participants in attendance. Mrs. Sturtz, a pre-kindergarten teacher at Winter Street said, "Celebrating Read Across America is not only a one-time event. Reading to or with your child should be something that happens everyday."
