Northport K-8 School kicked off its second book fair of the school year themed “Cruise Into Reading” by inviting Clifford the Big, Red Dog to shake the hand of parents in the parent drop off area and to welcome students into school to check out the book fair. Big Brothers, Big Sisters AmeriCorps tutors Renee Simpson and Alex Neelan are taking turns donning the red suit to intrigue the students into visiting the book fair and to promote the joy of reading to the students and parents at Northport K-8 School. The AmeriCorps tutors have become an integral facet of the school, and the students and teachers are thrilled to see them hard at work helping to make the educational experience at Northport very positive. Pictured are AmeriCorps tutor Renee Simpson as Clifford, and several excited Northport students.
