In celebration of Read Across America Day, United WE READ partnered this year with Roosevelt Elementary School in our local Kingsport City Schools district. We provided books and a grab-bag of items to promote our message which reminds students and families to Read 20 Minutes Every Day! All PreK through 5th grade students at Roosevelt Elementary received a new book for their personal home library and a United WE READ branded bookmark, highlighter, fridge magnet, and family brochure.
Read Across America is a celebration event begun by the National Education Association, and celebrates the birthday of beloved author, Dr. Seuss.
Check out these photos from United WE READ’s own celebration, and then read the Kingsport Times-News coverage of our event or browse their online Read Across America gallery for more!
Thank you to Dr. Jeff Moorhouse, KCS Superintendent, and the many Roosevelt teachers and staff who planned and coordinated the event!
