South Baldwin Christian Academy Students, Teachers and Local Leaders to Join Together for National Read Across America Day
Students at South Baldwin Christian Academy (SBCA) will join millions of their peers across the country to celebrate the sixteenth annual National Education Association’s (NEA) Read Across America Day on Thursday, March 2, 2017.
NEA’s Read Across America Day, which celebrates Dr. Seuss’s birthday and the joys of reading, expects more than 45 million readers, both young and old, to pick up a book and read.
Local Community Leaders Get Involved
To honor the good doctor and celebrate the fun and value of reading, SBCA will be hosting local business and community leaders to serve as “guest readers.” Books authored by Dr. Seuss such as Cat in the Hat, Green Eggs and Ham, and Fox in Socks will be read to the school’s more than 170 students. The goal is to show SBCA students the joy of reading and strengthen literacy in the South Baldwin community.
