901 Reads

No matter the season, learning is always IN! The Literacy is Life: 901 Reads event is geared toward families and communities coming together to learn, live, and play TOGETHER!

The District teams up with businesses and organizations to read the same book at the same time.

The featured book for 2022, What If We Were All the Same! by C.M. Harris, is geared toward students in grades 1-3 and teaches invaluable information about embracing and appreciating diversity. Participating children went home with a copy of the featured book.
