Mill Creek Elementary School hosted their third annual Read-In today, and I had the opportunity to participate.
Basically this something that the school does in conjunction with World Read Aloud Day, where they invite various people from the community to come into the classrooms and read to the students stressing the importance of being a strong reader.
Today I really saw the community come together to make this happen. I saw police officers, city officials, Disney princesses, business leaders and more come together and read to classrooms filled with attentive and excited children.
I read books to five different classes of 4th and 5th graders, and I’m pleased to say that I have total confidence in our future!
Thanks to Mill Creek for the invite, and thanks to children for making my day!
