Representative Subeck Participates in Read Across America at Jefferson Middle School
Jefferson Middle School students joined millions of their peers across the country to celebrate the eighteenth annual National Education Association's Read Across America program.
MADISON – Today, Representative Lisa Subeck (D-Madison) spoke to sixth grade students at Jefferson Middle School about the importance of reading as a part of Read Across America. Jefferson Middle School students joined millions of their peers across the country to celebrate the eighteenth annual National Education Association’s (NEA) Read Across America program.
“Reading is one of the most important skills our children learn in school, and is a critical skill to develop while they are young,” said Representative Subeck. “The Read Across America program is a great opportunity to share the love of reading with students and to promote literacy in our schools.”
The NEA’s Read Across America program, which celebrates Dr. Seuss’s birthday and the joys of reading, is responsible for more than 45 million readers, both young and old, picking up a book and reading. Read Across America brings together schools, libraries, and communities with the goal of showing students the excitement of reading and building a nation of readers.
“I enjoyed sharing why reading is important in my job as a legislator,” said Rep. Subeck. “Read Across America is an excellent program that promotes literacy and helps ensure students in Wisconsin develop a love of reading.”
