KOIN 6 reads to kids for Read Across America Day


PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Kids, parents and educators across the United States are celebrating reading this week. 

The National Education Association’s National Read Across America Day is on Saturday but many schools observed the program a day early, including Sacajawea Elementary School in Vancouver. 

KOIN 6 News anchors Dan Tilkin and Jennifer Hoff read to students at the school on Friday. 

They visited Mr. Lee’s 5th-grade class, Ms. Hoover’s 3rd-grade class and Ms. Phelan’s 5th-grade class. 

Tilkin and Hoff also met with the students involved in the school’s news program, called Skyhawk News. Many students in the program have visited the KOIN 6 newsroom for tours over the past 3 years.
