PARSIPPANY — Last week our parents were guest readers in each classroom as Northvail celebrated Read Across America. The event is timed to coincide with the birthday of children’s author, Dr. Seuss and is designed to increase awareness and motivation among children to encourage reading and literacy. The first-ever Read Across America Day was held on March 2, 1998. As the nation’s largest reading celebration, more than 45 million students, parents, educators and others participate every year.

Each parent shared one of their favorite books as students listened attentively.

A special thanks to Diana Mazzarella and all the parents who volunteered their time in making this program a success.
