GAE President Dr. Sid Chapman is looking forward to hearing from you about your plans and celebrations for Read Across America 2017. Festivities will taken place on and around March 2.
GAE's official kick-off will take place March 2 at the Children's Museum of Atlanta.
It's never too early to start planning for your 2017 Read Across America activities. Check our related links below for everything you need. When ordering RAA merchandise, it is suggested that you get your orders in as early as possible.
Also, locally please take advantage of the partnerships that have developed from the state level.
Create an event in conjunction with your local public libraries, school media specialists, press, Barnes and Noble (if applicable), Reading Councils, Kiwanis clubs, school system public relations persons, local authors, and community organizations e.g. fire, police, children's hospitals. Invite local business, community, civic, and social leaders to participate in an event. Encourage school leaders to do something outlandish as a reward for their students meeting a reading challenge.(See Pledge to Participate below.)
