In recognition of Read Across America Day on March 2, John F. Kennedy High School students enrolled in the child development class visited kindergarten and first-grade students at Reinhard. The high school students read selections of Dr. Seuss books to the younger students.

Established by the National Education Association, Read Across America Day is an annual reading motivation and awareness program that encourages students nationwide to celebrate reading on March 2, the birthday of beloved children’s author Dr. Seuss.   

Not only were the children excited to read their favorite books with the high school students, the activity exhibited a community connection between the two schools and provided an opportunity for the older students to adopt a leadership position in the classroom.
