Special Guests Help Students Celebrate Read Across America Day
On Friday, campuses across the district celebrated Read Across America Day by inviting community volunteers to come and read in their classrooms. Among the many volunteers participating were Mayor Dan Pope, Texas Tech Football Coach Matt Wells, Trustee Bill Stubblefield, parents, and other Lubbock ISD staff. Read Across America Day is an annual celebration to remind and inspire students to discover the joy of reading. It falls on March 2, Dr. Seuss’ birthday, in honor of the beloved children’s book author whose stories made many fall in love with reading for the first time.
