Poudre School District purchased books for all of their 1,793 kindergartners to celebrate Read Across America Day on Tuesday, March 2.
This purchase of books was a collaborative effort between Poudre School District (PSD) Interim Superintendent of Elementary Schools Dr. Traci Gile, Kate Canine, Professional Development director, and additional PSD staff who ordered books spanning a multitude of titles and reading levels.
“We hope that parents and their children can enjoy reading this book,” said Traci. “It is one of the most special memories I have from my childhood, sitting next to someone I loved and reading a book together,” Traci said.
A few schools featured special guests from PSD’s Board of Education, and the superintendent’s Cabinet joined their classes to help distribute books or read a story to the kindergartners. PSD Interim Superintendent Todd Lambert and Traci joined some schools virtually for a storytime visit as part of the celebration.
Read Across America Day was started by the National Education Association.
