World Read Aloud Day News

Wednesday, March 7 has been declared World Read Aloud Day by Lit World, an organization dedicated to ending world illiteracy.  Our school was lucky to be matched with a guest reader for the day as an opportunity to participate in this world event!  Fifth-grade sixth-hour Integrated Technology students will be Skyping with author Ty Allan Jackson during their class time.  He will be reading aloud to them and allowing them time to ask him questions about his writing and his life. 

Ty Allan Jackson is the author of the books Danny Dollar Millionaire:  The Lemonade Escapade and When I Close My Eyes.  He lives in Pittsfield, Massachuttes. 

We are very excited about being a part of World Read Aloud Day!  Pictures from the event will be posted Wednesday afternoon.  In addition, check out Sunday's Appleton Post-Crescent for an article featuring our participation!
