Read-a-Thon Promotes a Love of Literacy

Throughout the first two weeks in March, children at McAnnulty Elementary School participated in a Read-a-Thon sponsored by the PTO. Students celebrated Read-Across-America during the first week with lots of fun activities, including Thoughtful Thursday when they wore their pajamas to school! Families were invited back that night to share in the fun!

The literacy experiences continued with students hearing stories read to them by Baldwin-Whitehall community members. On Wednesday, March 11, Mrs. Hustava's Happy Campers were delighted when Dr. Lutz took time from a very busy week to read two books to them. They wondered how he knew Mo Willems was one of their favorite authors! The boys and girls enjoyed hearing about the adventures of Knuffle Bunny. Before he left, Dr. Lutz taught the children how to do the elbow bump!
