On Friday, March 3rd, Elizabeth Board of Education member Dr. Diane Barbosa visited Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. School No. 52 and Abraham Lincoln School No. 14 to read to students as part of Elizabeth Public Schools’ Read Across America activities. During her visits, she took time to interact with students, which included reading them stories written by beloved children's author Dr. Seuss. Dr. Barbosa was among several community leaders to visit schools throughout the district in celebration of Read Across America.

Elizabeth Public Schools joined school districts throughout the United States in participating in Read Across America, an annual reading motivation and awareness program sponsored by the National Education Association (NEA) that calls for every child in every community to celebrate reading throughout the week of March 2nd, the birthday of Dr. Seuss.
