Members of the Sacred Heart High School National Honor Society recently participated in the National Education Association “Read Across America Day” with a visit to the Maloney Interdistrict Magnet School in Waterbury.
The National Education Association has been building a nation of readers through its signature program, “Read Across America”. Now in its 22nd year, this program focuses on motivating children and teens to read through events, partnerships, and reading resources.
At Maloney, SHHS students visited a number of classrooms and read a variety of books to the young children. Our NHS members really enjoyed interacting with the Maloney students and hoped that, in some small way, their participation helped to foster a lifelong love of reading for the elementary students.
