To mark Read Across America Day, the middle school student representatives headed to Fairley for the reading festivities.

Divided into small groups, the second-graders listened intently as the older students read “What Pet Should I Get?”

“We wanted to create a partnership and build that connection between the middle school and elementary school,” said DMK counselor Meg Jaworski. “This is so great for the students, and it is a fun way to get them excited about reading.”

With the success of the reading collaboration, Jaworski said she and the middle school student leaders are already brainstorming future ways to partner with the elementary classes.
