Reading volunteers visited thousands of Milwaukee Public Schools students Thursday as the district celebrated Read Across America Day.
Created in 1997, the National Education Association’s Read Across America program is a day to celebrate reading and is held annually on the birthday of beloved children’s author Theodor Seuss Geisel.
As part of the celebration, Superintendent Dr. Darienne Driver read to students at MPS’ Escuela Vieau.
The school is Seuss Central with dozens of doors, hallways and classrooms decorated to celebrate the birthday of Dr. Seuss and the students' love of reading.
