McAlister Students Enjoy Read Across America Day

Print More

Read Across America Day was established by the National Education Association in 1998 to help kids get excited about reading. Each year on March 2, students, teachers, parents and community members around the country are encouraged to come together and celebrate the joy of reading. This day was chosen because it’s the birthday of Dr. Seuss, much-loved children’s author. In Suffield several community members, including our First Selectman Colin Moll, came in to the schools to read to students.
