Thursday, March 2nd was national Read Across America day. This annual event is a literary celebration that brings our school, community, and nation together through the love of reading.
Mrs. Martinez, our Media Specialist, and Student Council worked hard to make this an extraordinary day at CEA. To help us highlight the importance of reading and literacy, we had the honor of hosting alumni and local community members as guest readers in our classrooms. Our upper school students partnered with lower grades for buddy reading, and all students toured our new library. We are so fortunate to have spent a wonderful day of celebrating literacy.
As part of this celebration, Student Council is leading a philanthropic drive to collect new or gently used books for our local community. All books collected will be donated in Conchita Espinosa Academy's name to the Children's Trust "Read to Learn-Books for Free" campaign. Books will be collected from now until March 8 and should be turned in to your child's homeroom class.
Thank you to the National Junior Honor Society and Student Council members who helped prepare for the day! Thank you to our Media Center Specialist, Ms. Vivian Martinez, for putting this wonderful event together!
