Celebrity Read is an annual event that is part of Read Across America, a reading initiative that was created by the National Education Association. Each year, Celebrity Read is celebrated at the end of February. This is a motivational day encouraging all children and youth in every community across the United States to celebrate reading. The past three years at Luis Munoz Marin School, the staff and students had the privilege of welcoming readers throughout our community and city to come in and share their love of reading by reading a book of their choice to the students.
The past three years, the event has been organized by MS. Kinyetta Bird and Mrs. Latitia McReynolds, along with a team of teachers who want to ensure each class has the opportunity to have a visit by a “celebrity reader”. The students are read to from one of our many books in the school. Among the guests this year were Superintendent Chris Cerf, Councilwoman Mildred Crump, and several of our Police Officers and Firefighters within our city. This is a memorable day for both the school and the community.
