Unite-to-Read Project: First-graders have fun-filled, book-themed day

RICHMOND — All first-grade White Hall Elementary students were invited to participate in the Unite-to-Read project sponsored by the Madison County Area Technology Center’s Leadership Dynamics Class on Friday at Madison Central High School.

Unite-to-Read is a statewide project to encourage first-grade students to read.

The book chosen for this year’s project was “Curious George Takes a Job,” from the popular children’s book series written and illustrated by Margret and H.A. Rey.

Students enjoyed a fun-filled morning with a “monkey toss,” paint-your-own-cookie station, a petting zoo by Central’s Future Farmer of America and more. The Man in the Yellow Hat also made an appearance.

Students walked away Friday with a free book donated by the Madison County Public Library and family friends.
