In conjunction with Dr. Seuss’ birthday, Read America activities are taking place in elementary and middle schools across Clayton County Schools. They were developed by teachers, principals, teenagers, media specialists, politicians, authors, parents, grandparents with one objective: motivating children to read. They kicked off with family reading night Thursday at Lee Street Elementary. On Friday, Jonesboro High students will be reading to Suder Elementary students, Kemp Primary School will host a reading competition, and Oliver Elementary and Unidos Dual Language Charter Schools will be hosting activities. On Monday, Kendrick Middle School students and celebrity readers will be reading to children in grades 2-5 at Callaway Elementary.
