AVID students read to Head Start and Maude Saunders Elementary students in celebration of Read Across America Day (March 2). This annual reading motivation and awareness program calls for every child in every community to celebrate reading on the birthday of beloved children's author Dr. Seuss. Both the younger and older students enjoyed the experience, which put a spotlight on the importance of reading.
