Guests read to students at Palm Pointe

Palm Pointe Educational Research School @ Tradition celebrated Reading Across America recently with many fun activities. Many community members came to the school to read to different classes. Students in kindergarten through eighth grade read all week and documented their hours. Students exceeded last year’s reading total by logging in over 500,000 minutes of reading compared to close to 400,000 last year. The school also participated in a school wide event with buddy reading, where a class buddied up with another class and read together. The week was filled with reading and fun.
