Sweetwater ISD celebrates Read Across America Week

A national initiative was commemorated locally this week, as several campuses within Sweetwater ISD participated in the NEA (National Education Association) Read Across America Day, a joint celebration of reading as well as the birthday of children's literature legend Dr. Seuss.
On Read Across America day, school staff, family members, community leaders and others all across the nation develop fun reading activities and challenges for young readers. Read Across America hopes to motivate children toward reading not only for academic achievement but to encourage lifelong and successful reading.
