Students at Harley Avenue Primary School dressed up as their favorite book characters on Mar. 2 in honor of National Read Across America Day. This day of awareness, conceived and put into motion by the National Education Association, seeks to help get children excited about reading, and to motivate them to read more.

“I’m a boy scout and I like wild and dangerous things, so I was excited to dress up as Fly Guy, my favorite book character,” said James, a second-grader at Harley Avenue.

Students throughout the school dressed up as characters such as the Cat in the Hat, Strega Nona, Mary Poppins, and many more.
