Read Across 901

Boy student reading book

Read Across 901 is a District-wide literacy initiative designed to instill a love of reading in our youngest learners. On Friday, May 28, all MSCS students in grades K-2 will be watching videos of Superintendent Ray and our School Board members reading some of their favorite stories. Thanks to a generous donation from Literacy Mid-South, over 20,000 students will also receive free books for their home libraries during Read Across 901. We hope families will enjoy all of the stories below with their children to continue the love of learning and literacy at home!
