On Thursday, February 16, many South Newton students and teachers participated in World Read Aloud Day. Every year World Read Aloud Day calls global attention to the importance of reading aloud and sharing stories. This event showcases communities of readers all around the world advocating for literacy through intentional acts of sharing the power of words.
