Reading Across America

Lenape students brought the joy of reading and literacy into local classrooms to celebrate NEA’s Read Across America program! Students brought activities and resources to create exciting reading experiences for younger children in the community. 

Read Across America is an initiative on reading created by the National Education Association that began in 1997. One part of the project is National Read Across America Day, an observance in the United States held on the school day closest to March 2, the birthday of Dr. Seuss.
