MPS celebrates Read Across America
Milwaukee Fire Department cadets read to kindergarten and first-grade students at MPS' Thurston Woods Campus Monday morning to celebrate the National Education Association's Read Across America, a celebration of the birthday of famed children's author Dr. Seuss.
This annual reading motivation and awareness program ties in with the district's Comprehensive Literacy Plan, which has helped boost reading scores among 4th and 8th graders, the two grades tested in the National Assessment of Educational Progress Trial Urban District Assessment.
