Still More Celebrations of ‘Read Across America’

Several Newswatch 16 members went back to school on Tuesday as celebrations of Read Across America continue.

Some celebrations got rescheduled because of snow last week.

Newswatch 16's Nikki Krize was the guest reader at Sunbury Christian Academy near Sunbury. She read "Happy Birthday to You," "The Greedy Triangle," and "All You Ever Need," to preschool through sixth grade students at the school in Northumberland County.

Newswatch 16 morning anchor Tom Williams finished making the rounds, returning to his alma mater Dana Street Elementary in Forty Fort. Tom read "Dragon's Night" to second graders in Miss Foulkrod’s class.

Tom also talked to kids about working in television, the importance of reading, and about when he attended classes at the elementary school back in the Middle Ages.
