Read to Succeed
Read to Succeed is an educational program designed specifically for Headstart preschool children in Lowndes County. Each year, Read to Succeed coincides with the National Educations Association’s Read Across America Day, a nationwide reading celebration that takes place annually on March 2—Dr. Seuss’s birthday. Across the country, thousands of schools, libraries, and community centers participate by bringing together kids, teens, and books. During this week, Junior Auxiliary members read Dr. Seuss books with the children, do activities together throughout the week, and conclude the event with a Dr. Seuss’s skit. Read to Succeed has provided a fun reading environment to non-school age children encouraging them to become avid lifelong learning.
