This morning Sec. @barbarajeancoop read about Pete the Cat to the children in the First Class Pre-K classroom at Monroeville Elementary! We hope everyone picks up a book and enjoys a story to celebrate Read Across America!
📚 It’s Read Across America Day! @AL_DECE was excited to provide over 46,000 books to the children in our First Class Pre-K classrooms. Each child received 2 books to keep, and each classroom received a book for their classroom library.
