Students, Educators Rev Up for Read Across America Day

Students from the Cabot School District will travel to the state Capitol to join Governor Asa Hutchinson in celebrating the annual National Education Association’s Read Across America Day on Friday, March 2, 2018.

Read Across America Day, which celebrates the joys of reading, expects more than 45 million readers, both young and old, to pick up a book and read.

To celebrate the fun and value of reading, the Arkansas Education Association is asking you to join many of America’s leading literacy, youth, and civic groups in bringing a nation of readers together under one hat-the red and white stovepipe made famous by the Cat in the Hat-for a flurry of reading excitement!

This year, AEA is proud to partner with the Arkansas Department of Education to show our state’s children the joy of reading and increase literacy on March 2nd, and every day.

WHEN: 10 AM on 3/2/2018
WHERE: Capitol Rotunda,500 Woodlane St, Little Rock, AR 72201
