Northport K-8 lower school teachers and students showcased their love of literacy and participated in the state wide reading initiative, Celebrate Literacy, by marching in a literacy Character Day parade. Students dressed in book character costume, carried their books and walked with parents around the school to promote the pure joy of reading. The positive interaction between classes, teachers and parade watchers provided a great opportunity for students to see just how much they are cared for and to view the connections between books and good fun! Pictured are third graders from Diana Lankow’s class promoting popular book character Judy Moody.
