BRISTOL –On Thursday, State Representative Cara Pavalock (R-Bristol) paid a visit to Mountain View Elementary School in Bristol to participate in Read Across America Day.
In honor of Dr. Seuss’ birthday, Pavalock joined in the nationwide celebration by reading “The Hello Goodbye Window” by Norton Juster to the second grade students of Mrs. Famigletti’s class.
“It was a pleasure to participate in this year’s Read Across America celebration at Mountain View Elementary School,” said Pavalock in a press release from her office. “It is essential to emphasize the importance of reading as students continue their learning and development. Today’s celebration of Dr. Seuss’ birthday is a great way to engage students and I was thrilled to have spent time reading to these very bright youngsters.”
