“It was a pleasure to participate in the Read Across America celebration at Edgewood Elementary School,” said Rep. Pavalock-D’Amato.
“This annual celebration and fantastic reading program is a fun and dynamic way to encourage children and motivate them to read. Thank you to Mrs. Lathrop and the students for allowing me to be part of their morning and to ‘The Cat in the Hat’ who stopped in to share in the fun! I hope the students enjoyed the time as much as I did!”
Pavalock-D’Amato also spent time reading to students at Mountain View and Hubbel Elementary Schools in Bristol.
