Read Across America!
Read Across America is a reading awareness and motivation program that gives children around the country a chance to celebrate reading. The big celebration is on March 2, in honor of the birthday of the beloved children's author Dr. Seuss. As part of the festivities, our ELA coordinator, Bethany Reppert, organized a week full of events with the hope that students would gain a greater appreciation of both Dr. Seuss and reading.

A Beloved Community at the West End Community Center
When reflecting on MLK Day and my time with City Year, I realized how much service has grown to be an important part of my life.
