Read Across America

Read Across America Celebration

Friday, March 1, 2019


PJ Day

To celebrate Read Across America we are asking all students and staff to wear their comfiest pajamas to celebrate a day of everything reading.


Drop Everything and Read

Drop Everything and Read will happen two times on Friday. When the announcement is made everyone is expected to stop what they are doing and read for 15 minutes. We suggest that students have a favorite book to read that day. Teachers can have students read in the classroom or bring them in the hall for something different.


Guest Readers

We are hoping to have guest readers come to school on Friday. If you are interested in a guest reader please let the reading team know. You must be flexible, as we are not sure what time they will be coming to HP.


On Read Across America Day, we encourage all staff to share their love of reading with the students. Be creative and have fun.
