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.
Thank you @DanTilkinKOIN6 and @JennHoffKOIN6 from @KOINNews for reading to Sacajawea students during Read Across America Week. We are so glad you could join us today! 📖 #readacrossamerica #SkyhawksRead #VPSamazing pic.twitter.com/kTZwg6Z1rr— Sacajawea Elementary (@Sac_Principal) March 1, 2019
