National Read Across America Day is celebrated every year on March 2nd. Instead of just celebrating reading in schools once this month, Projectmack organized a handful of Celebrity Reading Days at elementary schools feature local collegiate athletes. Our first Celebrity Reading Day was at James Elementary in KCMO with UMKC Women's Soccer. The women's soccer team spent the morning visiting classes from kindergarten to 3rd grade reading the students their favorites books. After the book was over, students were also able to ask the players questions of their choice. The event was fun by all and the students loved getting to know the soccer players. Reading really has the ability to bring people together.
