Woodall Visits with Lawrenceville Students for Read Across America Day
LAWRENCEVILLE, GA— Congressman Rob Woodall (R-GA) traveled to the Lawrenceville Library on Friday, March 2, to visit with and read to over forty preschoolers in honor of Read Across America Day. Read Across America is a national reading initiative that began in 1997. On March 2 of each year millions of school students across America celebrate the joy of reading on the birthday of beloved author Dr. Seuss.
“I am thrilled to share in this special day with children and their parents at the Lawrenceville Library. I thank David Smith, the Lawrenceville Library’s Branch Manager, for allowing me to come and read to the kids,” Woodall said.
Woodall read two books: Green Eggs and Ham and Put Me in the Zoo.
“The fact that parents and teachers care to bring their children to these kinds of enriching events displays the kind of passion they have for nurturing young people. I will continue to do my part in Congress to ensure that parents will always have the first and final say in their children’s education,” Woodall said. “I am always lifted up by the enthusiasm of Gwinnett County students. Today was no exception. I only hope that the kids had half as much fun with me as I had with them.”
Woodall also visited Johns Creek Elementary School in Forsyth County to participate in Read Across America events.
