Read Across America Day!

Read Across America Day was Monday, March 2, 2021. National Read Across America Day is an annual reading, motivation, and awareness effort that calls for every child to celebrate reading on March 2nd, the birthday of children's author, Dr. Seuss. 

Every year, UWCT looks for volunteers that would like to take a few minutes out of their day read to elementary school students.

Fewer than one in five kids who read below their grade level in third grade go on to college. Giving kids the skills to succeed in school — like reading at grade level — sets them up for lifelong success. In fact, it lays a foundation that will span generations to come. Education is the change that lasts.
