First Grade Celebrates Read Across America

March 02, 2016
By Nashville Christian School

Today is National Read Across America Day! In celebration, our first graders are enjoying a lineup of more than 34 readers over the next week including Nashville Christian teachers, administrators, staff, coaches, fellow students, Mrs. McWright’s middle school class, and parents. Yesterday they had Emmy Award winning meteorologist Lelan Statom from News Channel 5 read his favorite Dr. Suess book to the class. (Look for a shoutout on tomorrow morning’s news around 6:15am!)

The National Education Association is building a nation of readers through its signature program, Read Across America. Now in its 19th year, this year-round program focuses on motivating children and teens to read through events, partnerships, and reading resources.

Our first graders love reading and have really enjoyed all of their special visitors. Thanks to everyone who has shared their favorite stories with our students and promoted a love of reading!
