On March 3rd CCFA held our 9th Annual “Read Across America Day“ at Jefferson Intermediate School ! It was a day full of joy and excitement as the entire school, students grades 4th to 6th selected books to take for their home libraries. Special Thanks to Susan Light from Morrisville Presbyterian Church our literacy partner who provided over 1,146 books for the event. Students enjoyed discovering new books and finding books they always wanted to own. Teachers were also given series books for their classroom libraries. Our day was all about inspiring reading and make books accessible to students to own!
Ms.Patricia M. Planter, Parent Liaison coordinated the event in conjunction with CCFA staff. Mr. Todd Light also volunteered and made it a fun time as he engaged students will helping them find books. Treats were donated by Trader Joe’s in Lawrenceville. We appreciate Nadia Ramcharan, Principal at Jefferson Intermediate School for her continued impactful partnership with the Center for Child and Family Achievement.
