Cherry Hill Township, schools celebrate Read Across America WeekRead Across 1.jpg
Today marked the National Education Association’s Read Across America Day, an annual celebration of literacy and learning that coincides with the birthday of beloved children’s author Dr. Seuss. Locally, we decided to expand the event into a weeklong celebration, issuing a special proclamation at our Feb. 25 Council meeting declaring Feb. 25 to March 1 as “Read Across America Week” in the Township. Barton Briefing.jpgDr. Maureen Reusche, superintendent of Cherry Hill’s schools, accepted the proclamation. On Thursday and Friday, I personally participated in two events, reading to children in Temple Beth Sholom’s daycare program on Thursday, and to students at Clara Barton Elementary School on Friday. With that said, learning and literacy are lifelong endeavors – and something that should be fostered throughout our lives. This weekend, I encourage all of you to spend some time with a good book, and, if you have them, to read to your children and grandchildren today and every day.

This is the Ensemble’s third consecutive year performing for audiences in Cherry Hill, and I am excited to welcome them back to town. Phone and e-mail ticket sales are now closed; however, special pricing – just $8 for adults and $5 for students – will be available at the door. For more information, click here.
