It is NEA's "Read Across America Day" today across the nation. A program that begun in 1998, today is the 20th observation of the event. Here in Wellington, members of WHS's "Crusaders of the Stage" performed at the elementary schools and then spent time in each classroom reading to the students. An awesome event and awesome way to encourage and reward reading. First stop was Washington Elementary this morning with more stops planned for Eisenhower, Lincoln and Kennedy by school day's end.
