State Rep. James Arciero recently participated in the Westford “Community Reader Day” at the Robinson and Crisafulli Elementary Schools. The annual event is held to promote and maintain student enthusiasm and energy around reading.
This event was part of the National Education Association’s Read Across America festivities. The purpose of the day is for a variety of community leaders to visit classrooms to stress the importance of reading skills while fostering a continued positive relationship between visible members of the Westford community, elementary students, and the Westford Public Schools.
The community reader, following the conclusion of the book, discusses the subject matter in a dialog with the students, and how books and reading have made an impact in their personal and professional lives. The book which Arciero read to the second graders was After The Fall (How Humpty Dumpty Got Back Up Again) by Author Dan Santat.
