Williamson County Schools

Country music star Garth Brooks made an appearance at Scales Elementary School in Brentwood Friday morning. As part of the Read Across America Celebration, Brooks read to the students.

In celebration of Dr. Seuss’ birthday on Wednesday, March 2, many schools across Williamson County took part in National Read Across America Day.

The National Education Association (NEA) held the first National Read Across America Day in 1998. According to NEA’s website, National Read Across America Day motivates children to read which in turn, inspires those children to become lifelong readers.

Numerous events were planned during the week in the district including appearances by guest readers, character parades and Read Across America pep rallies.
