On Monday, March 2 Saegertown High School’s National Honor Society and Key Club students participated in Read Across America. They ventured to Saegertown Elementary School under the guidance of librarian Mrs. Betty Litke to read to students. Sponsored by the National Education Association, Read Across America Day commemorates the birthday of Dr. Seuss.

Each NHS or Key Club student was assigned at least one classroom at the elementary school to read to SES students. “Elementary students look forward to having the high school students come read to them. I think it provides the younger students with a role model who not only does well in school but has taken the time to select  a book that they will enjoy,” third grade teacher Mrs. Kendra Burger said.

Junior Madison Bartholomew, a former student of Mrs. Stacey Donahue, had the opportunity to read to Mrs. Donahue’s second grade class. “I thought it was fun to go read to the younger kids. I will definitely do it again next year!”
