Dallas— March 3, 2022 — Associa, the community management industry’s largest provider, and the Associa Supports Kids community outreach team celebrated National Read Across America Day with the students at Dallas’ Lee A. McShan Jr. elementary school
As part of Associa Supports Kids ongoing community outreach and commitment to engaging children, a team of representatives from Associa’s corporate office volunteered to read to more than 100 first graders for National Read Across America Day. Joined by corporate mascot Scout, the team read Dr. Suess books to several classes and passed out storybooks to every child.
Established in 1998 by the National Education Association (NEA), National Read Across America Day is held every year on March 2nd, to help get children excited about reading. The day occurs on the birthday of beloved author, Dr. Suess, the writer of children’s classics such as The Cat in the Hat, Oh, the Places You’ll Go, and Green Eggs and Ham.
