Dakota Ridge High School teacher-librarian John Williams has been hosting a Read Across America Day for 11 years. This year, second-graders from Mount Carbon Elementary visited the DRHS library to listen to high school students, teachers, staff and community members read aloud.
“It’s important to instill the love of reading,” said Williams. “They have the opportunity to hear that everybody reads.”
Mount Carbon second-grade teacher Suzanne Swank said the visit has an added benefit.
