Hello White Eagle Families~
This week is Read Across America Week! Launched in 1998 by the National Education Association (NEA) and guided by a committee of educators, NEA’s Read Across America is the nation’s largest celebration of reading focused on motivating children and teens to read through events, partnerships, and reading resources that are about everyone, for everyone.
