KSES, HHS celebrate literacy month this March

KSES Librarian Jennifer Crawford reads to students to celebrate Read Across America week / Cheatham County School District

To celebrate Read Across America week – which took place March 2-6 during Literacy Month – Harpeth High School (HHS) students and administrators visited Kingston Springs Elementary School (KSES) and held storytime sessions in the library. 

“The HHS students have come back to school feeling very nostalgic and warm hearted after reading to the younger grades,” the Cheatham County School District wrote in a March 7 Facebook post. 

This year’s Read Across America week theme was diversity and inclusion. 

On March 6, Riley the Reading Raccoon – the Tennessee Department of Education’s Reading 360 mascot – stopped by KSES to spread the love for books, and encourage students to continue diving into the magical world of reading.

“Riley the Reading Raccoon is traveling across the state in March as part of Tennessee Literacy Month, and we are so excited he visited with our KSES students,” the district said. 

Separately, Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee visited students at Pleasant View Elementary School on the morning of March 6. 

The Cheatham County School District received a Governor’s Early Literacy Foundation grant several years ago to launch its book/STEM bus.
